Will a tire designed for a 10" wheel fit a 8.25"???

I have some 16.5" x 8.25" wheels. I am wanting to use 42" SS IROK tires. Their web site says to use a 10" width wheel.

Will an 8.25" wheel work fine? If not, Why not?

Off road 8.25 should work fine. On the highway though the side walls will be pulled in and the tread will not be in full contact with the road, it could be real bad on even a slight turn at even 50mph.
