How much would I have to roll and its not the rolling I'm worried about, it was just something that I didnt want to do and find out I could have been fine without it. The big issue I don't want to do is relocate the tabs though. There just arent enough body shops in WI that I think would do quality work on the fenders.

Try to find someone who specializes in rolling fenders. The rear fender tab sticks out just as far as the fender lip, a roll won't do any good unless you relocate that tab. It wouldn't have to be rolled "flat" though, just enough to give it a slight angle if that makes sense. With a marginal fitment like we are talking about then just trimming a little off the inside would work also.

Trust me, it's worse when you think you didn't need a roll and then your fenders get all jacked up - it happens all the time.

Relocating the tabs is the easiest part of this entire thing. It's literally just putting a screw in and hammering the current tab out of the way. I agree you need to find someone that knows what they are going because it sounds like you don't really know what entailed.

If you want to understand what is entailed with this read these threads

Basically any wheels that aren't stock offsets need a roll and even with stock offsets if you are really low or plan on being low then you should still roll the fenders. I have seen stock wheels damage fenders in the right situation.

Thanks for the info guys! I have plenty of time to do my research, I'll be fine with my ap2 wheels for now and it will be a while until I decide to get a drop let alone new wheels. As always, much appreciated.

I'm about to purchase an LS1 swapped S2K so I need the widest possible rear wheel with the most meat possible.

Recommendations? Has anyone fit a 10" or 11" wide while with stock fenders?

Thanks!

Yes for the rears you can do a max of/

11"+65 295/30/18. Requires fender roll or cut and tab relocate.

10.5" +72 285/30/18 Stock non modded fenders.

Your ride height and camber alignment are going to bear some influence on slight inner or outer rubbing.
