Correct.

OP, I've experienced a TON more traction with an 8.4" wide tire than a 275 on a 9.5" wheel.

I currently have a 275 (secretly) mounted on the back of my 330i....and it definitely needs some body work to fit properly. But if you are willing to do a bit of cutting...it's feasible.

One of the nice things about a wider tire is that you don't need to run as high tire pressures to hold up the sidewall...
