Default To those running 275/70R18 tires!

I'm picking up a set of 275/70r18 BFG ATs this week. The tire specs says the widest rim to run is 8.5". Can I eventually run some 18X9 rims without any issues? II have seen some trucks on here with this size tire with 18X9 wheels. If anyone has this size tire and stock or aftermarket rims will you please post some pictures.

Thanks in advance!

I have them! And I've used this set up for right around 3 years without issue.

The rim width range has some wiggle room but I would never get more than 1" out of range. The tire just won't sit properly on the road.

Let me grab some pics when I get home phone is being dumb right now.
