    I bought some rims several years ago that came with 255's on them. I ran them for a couple of years with no issues. I don't really think you're supposed to run them on 8" rims though but Jeg's recommends an 8" rim for 255 MT drag radials so who knows. .

    I ran those Cooper tires before. they are ok, but are all season and don't offer the best traction. I switched to Riken Raptors for about the same price and think they perform a lot better.
    a 245 cooper is perfect square for a 8.5" rim, a 255 on an 8" rim would fit, but would be pushing it for best traction matchup.
