    That same size in a nitto 555r easily fit on my 8" rim.

    yes, it depends on the tire. Nitto's run small and can be put on a 8" wheel but generally 275's are put on 9" to 10.5" wheels safely.

    The 10.5 in the rear looks way better IMO. As long as you don't mind not being able to rotate your tires.
