I usually buy #9 corks. however, a friend just gave me several hundred #8 corks for free.

I know they aren't great for long term storage...that is the extent of my knowledge of this size cork.

I would only be using it for blueberry, strawberry, and dragon blood type wine...stuff that I will drink fast, never bottled for longer than 8 months.

using standard clear 750ml Bordeaux bottles.

would this be a problem?

I think you are fine with #8 corks for 2 years.
I think I would like them better for early drinkers, easy in easy out!
