Default 225/50/15 9" 6ul and stock suspension

buying a set of 9" 6uls for a car i'm building but seeing as i'm strapped for cash i was going to pull the 225/50/15 rs2 off my street car but i can't replace my street rubber yet.

if i drive the 6uls with my rs2 on stock suspension and oem alignment specs will i still need to roll my fenders? trying to not have to pay a buddy to roll the fenders on both cars.

its not that hard. Get out a rubber mallet and start hammering. I honestly think mine turned out better than most cars Ive seen that use a roller.
