Anyone running 225 and 255 tires on 8.5 and 9.5 wheels?

I've been looking at aftermarket wheels but there doesn't seem to be anything available that matches the stock 19x7.5, I already have a couple sets of tires I bought for the stock wheels, has anyone else run 225 front and 255 rear tires on wider wheels? Any issues?

on 8.5 and 9.5 225 and 255 with our needed aspect ratio will look stretched. id recommend 235 and 265 min for those wide of wheels.

I'm running 225 fronts with 8.5s and there is a slight stretch but not much. The OEM pirellis seem to run wide so that helps. Not the best pic but you can see what they look like here. i

With 8.5" all the way around 225s fronts and 255s rear, I run 10mm spacers both front and back, on H&R VTF adjustables.

Stock set up I ran 15mm front and 20mm rear. (OEM 19" wheels and stock springs)

On the stock tire size, but with Michelin PS4S.

Front is 19x8.5 +30 and the rear is 19x9.5 +44. No spacers used.

Forgot to mention my 8.5s are +40 offset all the way around so my spacer setup is slightly different.
