Default Do these 5Zigen Pro Racer GN+ +48 fit stock fenders with no roll?

I'm considering getting a second set of summer wheels and these popped up locally.

5Zigen Pro Racer GN+

Front: 17x7.5 +48, I'd run either a 225 or 245 tire on this at -1.5 degrees camber
Rear: 17x8.5 +48, I'd run 255 on this at -2.0 degrees camber

Do these wheels require a roll in the rear or tab bending in the front? Are these tire width's safe on these wheels?

I am trying to avoid any sort of fender modification and still on stock suspension.

With those tire sizes, it will require work. A 245 on a 7.5" wheel is not a good fit. Handling and fitment will suffer. 215/45/17 would be a better fit, both for steering feel/response and will not require fender work. A 245/40/17 will fit on the 17x8.5+48 without work as well. A 255/40 will require a roll. Fitment is also dependent on ride height. Minor drop is fine, but if you go really low, they may still need work running appropriate tire sizes. Most eventually lower the car, aftermarket wheels at stock height looks very odd.

Thanks, ok seems that this will only work with stock tire sizes to keep the fenders original. That may still be an option, they have 1 size up currently mounted, so 225 front 255 rear.

Still running stock height and suspension and I plan to stay that way.
