Has anyone on here put a 6.50 tire on a 5.50 rim? If so does it look like a balloon?

I've put several 6.50 tires on Gravely rims, which are 3 3/4 or 4 1/4 if I remember correctly.  The Ag tires look good, the turf tires do "ballon" a bit.  I'd think a 5.5 rim would be fine for a 6.50 tire.

Thanks, I am thinking about the 16x6.50x8 5 rib tires I was going to look for the 6.50x8 sears wheels if I had too.
