Default Rota Grid Offroad 16X8 fitment

I just got 205 45's tires on my 1996 m edition and the tires on those 16x8 +20 offset wheels stick out past the fenders to where fender roll wouldnt even help. I am clueless on how to make them fit because all i have read is to roll your fenders or get at least a 3mm spacer and that would just make them stick out even further. i have the bilstien yellow struts and eibach pro kits springs on my car now. Do i need to grind the backs of the rims or do i have to get fender flares?

This guy fit 225's under stock fenders on the same wheels. But you will probably have to do a slight pull to avoid the rubbing.

either:
1) sell the crappy 0 offset 16x8's
or
2) join clubricer(roadster) where they will show you 100 different ways to ghetto rig this and make it hellaflushtabulous rendering your car useless trying to do what it was designed to do

So much aggression, so little reading... He said they were +20 and several people on here have run them and do run them.

Looking to get a set of these polished et 20 is perfect! I know auto crossers prefer the +10 to +25 on an 8". Good camber and grip for days!

The Off-Road's are +10 not + 20, I am the reason you can buy them in 4x100

I had to buy 3 sets to get rota to make them in that size. I ran them with the autokonexion wide body with spacers.

never mind they make them +10 - +30 . I had the +10's. These wheels suck, they look cool on a wide body car, but they are heavy as **** and fit like ****. I got wise and now have advanti storms
