Default Fender Roll and pull questions

I've looked around and correct me if I'm wrong but if I want to put 15x8 rims with a +34 offset and (atleast) 225/45-15 r888's I'll need to roll and pull the fenders slightly. I have a 91 miata and wanted to make sure before I bought anything. Thx

A slight roll, maybe. A pull, I would think not. I've normally seen pulls for cars with 15x9 wheels, mostly NA's. The NB's don't seem to share the same issues.

I wouldn't think you'd need anything done, possibly a roll, depending on how low the car is. That's not a particularly aggressive offset.

Alright thanks. I wasn't sure with the tire if I needed to pull it or not

If you have a really soft suspension you may rub a bit durring hard cornering. I did with my 15x9 225 setup. I did a simple roll and never hit now (What I really need is a better suspension)
