The 8" rims are Wideboy rims, the backspacing is greater than on the Jimny so you may need to adjust the steering stops a little to avoid the steering linkage rubbing on the rim on full lock. For an offroader I would go with a 7" rim with 215/75/15 tyres. A narrower tyre works better on a Jimny, its much less prone to tramlining and aquaplaning.
Check out bigjimny.com, its a very good site for Jimny owners.
