They don't put 225/255 on non-staggered wheels, they put 225/245 on non-staggered wheels. 225/245 on an 8" wheel are within manufacturer specs.

What size are the tires? 255/275 doesn't tell you the diameter of the tire. Although even a 255/30 is big for the front of the car; I'd be suspicious as well.
