Default 205-40-16s with 0-offset wheels on NA

Will it work with stock fenders?

you may have to do a lil cutting to get the clearance you need to turn lock to lock and ditch the plastic inner fenders. i had problems with front mud flaps (they got in the way)

Meh, I'm fading away from them because of that. If I get a really good deal on a set I'll be going for them.

Any pics? I think I've seen it before, don't remember clearly though. They were XXRs, right?

I have 18x8 0 offset up front and with the 205/40s I had no problem but the 215/40 rubs alittle where the side skirt bolts on. I'm also not lowered either and I will have different wheels by the time I do that

I have xxr 522 15x8. 0 offset on stock suspension. What are my lowering options and do I need to pull/roll fenders?

I'm slammed pretty hard and only running a slight pull with 17's. No problems and no rubs ever.

you might need to troll the fenders a little. there are instructions at clubroadster.net.
