They may "fit" on a stock rim but it would be pointless. Your not going to be able to use the tread from the 315 on a 8.5" rim. I mean I can fit into a small t-shirt, but it looks stupid......same concept here

lol at small t shirt. There will be so much bubble on that tire that it will look dumb. I would say 285 max before it starts looking kinda goofy.

they dont look all that bad but as stated. you wont use the full potential of a 315 tire. but if you already have the tires, you can put them on the wheels

315s will fit on a stock wheel... there are lots of threads about this....
No offense mystang, but this is bad advice.

Like Mike said, they may *fit* but a tire that wide on a rim that narrow not only looks bad, but it will perform bad too. It will have negative effects on handling, ride, traction, and tread wear.

Basically, don't do it.

Most tire manufacturers say 10.5 for 315 tires. At least thats what ive seen.

8" wheels = 245's
8.5" weels = 255's
9" wheels = 275's
10" wheels = 305's
10.5" wheels = 315's

These are max recommended width (there are some variables) for nearly all manufacturers of tires. One can go a bit wider without any real problems, but going much wider will not only cause strain on the sidewalls, but poor performance and uneven wear. Oversized is also just a waste of width, so buy wider wheels.

I know you probably havent seen this as Mr.Internet just invented it, but there is this thing called a search button... It would amaze you what this thing does.
Fox your giving alot of people **** for this search button thing. I wouldnt be getting pissy with you if you could have just said Try using the search button. But you gotta get smart with me you asshole.
