Default 255 Victoracers on 17x8's......roll the fenders???????

Just picked up a set of Rota Torques in 17x8 with a 48mm offset and a set of 255/40/17 Victoracers for this year's auto x with my 02 WRX. Does anyone have this same set up and did you have to roll the rear fenders of the car??? I know the fitment threads are everywhere and I read alot of them, but I want to know if someone has this exact set up. Also, changing current suspension set up to coilovers this spring.

That's what I figured, but I thought there might be a chance that I wouldn't have to. Oh well.

I did mine trackside with a rubber hammer in 5 minutes. That was 3 years ago...

Not a big deal at all.

I have rota torques 17x8 w/ hankook k104 255/40/17 and I am rolling the fenders. I rub on hard turns and with passengers/


If you are auto xing then you will need to roll them or they will rub. I say better to roll then to rub
