I have dealt with this a couple times before. Couple of things at work: The tire is on the narrow side for the ZCP wheel, but it is within manufacturer recommended specs. Some Bridgestones (RE960 was one, looks like LM60 is another) look more stretched on wider wheels. Snow tires run narrow compared to summer or all season tires.

So your dealer looked at the specs, saw that the wheels were within the allowed rim widths per manufacturer specs, and said it would be fine. All the factors mentioned above conspire to make it look crazy. It *should* drive safely assuming proper installation, but rim damage would be nearly inevitable.

Most guys with ZCP wheels in winter go 255/35F 275/35R
