    Recommended rim width for that size tire would be 7.5 to 9, so yes it will work, but it will not look right since the rim is comparatively too wide. And if you rub any curb with that setup, be ready for lots of rim rash. I say buy new rubber for those wheels.

    Burn them off and get some vid of it then get new wider tires that'll look and handle better.

    I agree. Ditch the skinnies for some 275/40 17 rubber.
