18x8.5 +44 stock ride height, will it fit??

I dont really want to roll fenders but can do, pulling fenders isnt an option, just want to be able to fit and drive.

It'll fit. Rear will probably rub on decent sized bumps or with the back loaded up. Will be perfect with camber bushes but not completely needed.

Fronts may protrude a whisker but should not scrub too much at stock height

My fronts are sweet with the mild drop from pink springs. No rolling and not maxxing out the stock camber bolts either. Thats with a +47 so gives me 3mm more clearance than you'd get but 3mm is bugger all. Comes down to tyre choice and a brands particular tread width more than anything.

Mine are exact as proposed, they needed rolling work to fit.
