Default Offset help

I was wondering if anyone has 15x7 on there car with about 20 offset? If so did you have to roll your fenders? I did some searching but couldn't find much on 15x7's. I am not looking to "stance" my car, but with coilovers I am worried I would have to roll my fenders.

Tires factor in too you know.
But assuming you have regular 205/50 or something like that you shouldn't need any fender rolling.
That's barely bigger than stock.

Yes I would have 205's. Sorry I forgot to put tire size, would the profile of the tire be a big factor as well? The profile will most likely be 45 or 50.

As long as you're not slammed to the ground that size/offset should be completely fine

If you know how to use a tape measure and can eyeball how things would fit, use this to see how much your clearances change.

On my NA I had 15x7 +20 with 205/50 and I would rub occasionally if I hit a strong dip or a mild dip while turning. It didn't happen enough or worry me enough to roll my fenders. I was at stock height.
