They'll be fine on a 8" rim. They'll mount on a 7.5 but will wear a little more in the center of the tread...also wont give you the optimal tire surface for traction because they will bulge a bit in the center of the tread, which will in turn be the focal point of your contact patch. But the answer is yes, they will fit.
