I'm looking at a set of Maxxis Creepy Crawlers 37x12.5x15 which are recommended for rims that are 9-11" wide. My rims are only 8.5" wide, would this be an issue?

Only if the tire shop doesn't want to mount them... An overly narrow wheel can allow more rollover when going around corners making a tire feel mushy... But 1/4" on each side? Your not going to notice it.

I had 38x13.50r17 Milestar Patagonias on an 8.5 wide wheel. I had no issues. The tires do balloon out quit a bit. On a 15 inch wheel the ballooning may be more prominent.
