They don't seem very big, but I would check tire rack they will tell you what tires will fit or not

I would only do it if those are your "burnout wheels". If you daily drive the car at all stick with 245 or 255.

Pass on them. You're gonna have that whicked stupid ricer stance where the tire is stretched way out to fit. If you loose air pressure and the bead breaks while driving, things will go bad very quickly.

215 series tire is actually about 8.4" wide And a 8" wheel from lip to lip is 9" stretch would be minimal 215/50 would work great on it. An its a cheaper option im doing a 215 on 8" when i switch my fronts

245s are pretty much flush on a 9" rim, 215s will look a little stretched on a 8" rim but it will work. I think they'll be too narrow just overall but they'd make a great snow tire.

I always see ppl putting too big of tires on their rims like 275s on a 8" or even a 9" is too big. You want the straightest sidewall possible on a street radial to elminate sidewall flex. I'd rather have a little stretch than a tire bulging over the rim. That's what I HATE about my front tires. The PO put 265s on a 9" rim and they bulge out a bit and it makes me twitch a little when I look at it. Should have been a 245 or 255 on that rim goddamit...
