255/50/16 RA1s on a 8" wide rim

There is a lot of conjecture out there on max tire size for an 8" wide rim.
I have found a pretty good deal on a pair of 255 wide RA1s and Tire Rack's web site says they will "fit" on my 8" wide rims.
My question is, will the tire be supported enough to not feel squishy in turn in?
