They will fit fine. You may need to run a slightly lower pressure on road to get a good contact patch. You'll find you can drop pressures lower when offroad without risking losing a bead as easily.

I agree. I run 35x12.50's on 15x8 wheels. I run 25psi on the street and usually 10 on the trail. Has been working great for 3 years now and have only popped one bead. But that's cause I was doing doughnuts on a snowy dirt road and slid into the bank on the side of the road.
