Is 225 too skinny for a 16x8 rim?

I have ordered some Nokian Hakka LT3 tires in 225/75R16. I also have my eye on some nice alloy rims that happen to be 16x8. An 8" rim width sure seems to be pushing it for tires that skinny. Any suggestions?

Their website does not provide specs for their tires, but I looked at the specs for a couple different tires in that same size from other manufacturers and they are recommending a wheel width range of 6-7” or 6-7.5”.

With that it mind, I would say that an 8” wide wheel would be too wide for that tire size.
