Sorry to hear about the Mafia Figure that did in your tires. As Pontiac says "wider is better"...

I personally wouldn't go wider than 255 on a 8inch rim. Tire manufacturers usually don't recommend any tire with a section width that is more than 2inches more than the rim width. Stock section width is 245mm or 9.65inches. 255mm is 10.03, which is about as wide as I would go. 265 is 10.43inches which would cause some compromise in tread width. Not much though.

The guys at discount tire recommended I go with 275/40's on mine. I have not done it yet..but they said there was not a problem with that configuration. The width would look real aggressive and mean on the car..but you do what your pocket book allows and your common sense deems best.
