    Thats the same size wheel and tire that I run. No fender rolling required. Just
    flip your quad shocks and your good to go.

    What for rear suspension do you have? Depending on that you can remove the quad shocks. You also take the risk of the tire hitting the rear lips with out rolling them, when my car squated hard it hit the side wall of a 275/50/15 BFG Radial, it would be best to roll them for saftey purposes.

    15" x 8" with 5.5" backspace

    No fabrication needed, just flip and bolt 'em back down! I would imagine you'll have to remove the quads and roll the fenders for a tire that wide. I had to remove my quads to get my 245/60's on... every car is different. Oh, and get 5.5" B.S..
