Its there, its slight. The sidewall is out about 1/8th of an inch from the rim lip, maybe a little less. This 8" rim is around 8.8" wide lip to lip and the tire is 9.1" wide overall.
Its exactly the look I wanted with the 9" rims but the 8" actually fit better in the front fender of a 94-98 honestly.
And 275s will fit on a 8" rim, I've done it, its just ridiculous and actually will lower performance/handling. 235s for this look, 245 or 255 for a bulgier look, I would not go wider.
