Wheels too skinny

Thought my silver blade wheels were 7.5"wide like the wheels on my last wj but they're 7". I bought tires for a 7.5-9" wheel that are 33" tall is this gonna work? Opinions or experience from a tire guy wanted

What width tire? Many people run 12.5 section on a 7, but I think thats a bit extreme.

They will work, but it will be pulled in a good bit.

When you think about it the tyres will only be pulled in a 1/4 of an inch more each side than they would be on a 7.5 inch tyre. Be surprised if you can notice the difference.
