rim width question and new tires

Guys my rims are 18x8 Gear alloy's.. i love them, but want to run a 35x12.50 tire... when i search for tires most have a rim width range of 9-12... can i still fit these on a 18x8 rim? whats the downside or upside of doing this if u can do it?

I run a Nitto trail grappler 35 x 12.50 on mine. No problems at all. Run around 55 psi

It is not reccomended, but can be done... It will just have more sidewall flex which means you won't be able to tow/haul alot of weight.
