They won't fit properly (rim is too narrow) and they will rub. I have 275/40/18 and had to roll the fenders and massage the inner fenders.

you have to roll the outer fender lip and you have to hammer the inside fender in. I am sure that there is a more civilized way but thats what I did to mine. I don't have drag bags just harder springs and shocks and have no rub on a bigger tire (275/40/18). I also have a wider wheel from a c5 vette

You shouldn't have to touch the inner fender to install 275s on stock offset wheels. You'll just have to have the rear fenders cut or rolled.

With that said, I'd never recommend putting 275s on 8" wide wheels. Sure, people do it all the time but it is not recommended by the tire manufacturers.

i hear what you saying and know there a little wide. but to go to the track 3 or 4 times a season to buy new is a lot of cash for me .

Get just two rims and put DRs and that will be for the track only. With the stock brakes I think you can even put 15s on the rear. You can get 16s from an f body. Some will say that the bolt pattern is not exactly the same but I am running Vette wheels for more than 10000 miles without any problem (with ARP studs). And how much power your car makes. Drs hook very good. You can go with a narrower tire.
