Sorry for this somewhat non-answer...the widest tire that you can fit back there is a lot wider than the widest tire that you can put on an 8" rim (which as far as I've seen a tire shop mount according to "their policy" is a 255).
But perhaps S13REMI's thread on how he put 10" wide Corvette wheels with 305/30 on his PPV will help, or at least inform: http://www.newcaprice.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1055

The wheel width would be the limiting factor first. Could probably squeeze a 275 on there. the sidewall will look a bit bubbled out since the wheel is only 8" wide, assuming you are refering to the rear
