Will 225's fit on a 9" rim?

Can anyone tell me if a 225/40/18 tire will fit on a 9" rim? I'm looking at getting the 330ZHP replica rims that are 8" in the front and 9" in the back, but I have tires that are all 225/40/18, I don't mind the euro stretched look on the back if thats the case, but will they even hold air? I'm hoping someone here has an answer for me, thanks in advance.

Ideal size for a 9" rim is about 245-265 IMO. I Have 255's on mine.
However, as Shimajer mentioned you can, but it will be streched, and easy to curb.

Too far of a stretch to be practical, the car will probably handle poorly without much "give" in the sidewalls.

It'll actually handle quite nicely, the steering response will be very sharp. But potholes and curbs will become your biggest fear.
