255/75 R17 on 8.5" rims?

I want to run MB Chaos 5's (already have them) on 255/75 R17 BFG KM's. I know these are the stock tire on the Rubicon with the stock 17x8" wheels. Will putting these tires on a slightly wider rim cause any problems? I don't want the lip of the rim protruding out past the sidewall and getting damaged. Thoughts?

I don't believe so. It should only stretch the tire so you might lose a little height but it may not even be noticeable.
