How would 225/50 & 245/50 work? Any recommendations?

Thanks guys.
I think you might want to consider 245/45 rears. The sidewall is not too squishy, and I think it would still fit on a 8 inch rim. You can double check with the tire manufacturer or somebody knowledgable at tirerack.

A 245/50 might work, I just don't really know if you will like having the extra sidewall. Kind of cuts down on the performance, I would think.

I imagine with either size rear on an 8 inch rim, you may want to run a decent amount of air pressure to keep the tire from being squishy on a 8 inch rim.
