I've got them installed and they look great!

The tires fit really well. The stock 9.5" rims are really the max width the 255 width tires can accommodate, and they're a little stretched on the stock rims. 8.5" is a lot more natural.

I've never heard or read about what they described. I think there would be *less* issue on 8.5" because it isn't as stretched out.

Hey Frank, What do you plan on doing with your OEM wheels?
Don't have the OEM wheels anymore - replaced them with TSportline 20" wheels immediately after purchase. Moving over to 19" as I'm not too happy with the 10" wide wheels causing curb rash very easily, and the ride quality will hopefully improve a bit as well with 19" (and they are quite a bit lighter). In hindsight should have kept the Geminis :)

BTW: planning to sell the TSportline TST wheels after changing (probably for around $1300 including TPMS and Michelin PS A/S3+ tires).
