    8" is pretty wide for front. A 7-inch with 4-inch back-space is perfect for front, and depending on tire size, 3-3/4" or 4" is good for the rear...

    Hippylong,
    here's 16x8 with 275/50/16s. Zero offset. Just needed some rollers, these barely fit with 12mm spacers. 15mm would be perfect.
    The fronts are 255/50/16s. Just rollers, not driven.
