    What tires are you looking at? What does the manufacture recommend? Michelin recommends 7.9-9" width for that size. Will they fit? Yes. It may bulge in the center and might look a little funny. I am sure guys do it all the time. I would not. I had a set of 35x16.5x15 on 15x9 rims. they bulged in the center, wore the tread down rather quickly in the middle. I switched to a 15x12 rim and they looked wider, wore evenly, rode better, and looked nicer.

    I'll second staying within parameters that the tire manufacturer stipulates. If in doubt, check the manufacturer's site to determine what wheel width is needed...
