Default Best size wheel on na without rolling fenders?

So first off let me say that I CANNOT roll my quarter panel because of body work and it will crack to ****.

I've searched around and have only found unsure people saying just roll them, but my case is different and that's not a usable answer. So that being said what's the largest any of you guys have seen?

I've heard 15x8 +35 works with like 215 or something?
Then on the other hand I've heard 15x7 +40 with decent tires is better if you're low?

I am pretty low with little camber as you can see below


I can raise it accordingly if needed, but I don't like wheel gap to much.

I had a set of 13x7 -30 and that didn't go to well lmfao



Thanks for reading.

we dont tolerate clubricer retardation here

15x7 205 will fit your car without rolling/pulling
15x8 might as well with some neg camber

Haha, I try not to be rice. Do you by chance know the offset I should shoot for with the 15x7? And thanks for responding so quickly.

No roll, 15x8 +36 with 205/50. So much nicer to roll fenders and run 15x9 +36 with 225/45 though. Google that fitment for pics. Run pinch weld height of around 4-1/8" front and maybe 1/8" higher in rear. *Not fender height.*

I agree with 15x8 w/205. 225s will probably need a roll to avoid rubbing.

I have Kosei k6r in 15x8 +35 offset with hankook rs3 in 225/45r15 and they barely rub on mine with a little bit of a bump in height. The one side is still rubbing in the rear because it's lower, so I'll have to fix that, but overall the fitment is perfect. A tiny bit of roll and I can run my current height on the rubbing side.

15x8/225 will rub the plastic fender liners in front but those are easily smashed flatter.
