arrutled and I both have 275's in back (though on different - wider - wheels than the stock 8.5" setup. They'll likely fit in there, but depending on where the stock wheels place the sidewalls, you may have to roll the fender or add a spacer. I'm leaning towards them juuuuust squeezing in there, or needing a fender roll.

I agree with others that you are risking tire bead separation by running that wide of a tire on an 8.5" wide wheel though. You'd almost need a cantilevered bead tire, which are not made in that size.
