Question Will these fit?

I swerved to avoid hitting a dog last night and ended up hitting a curb. Now I am looking for new wheels as a result. I am looking to get some Advan RSs. My question is can I fit the 17x9 +29 without any mods on stock suspension and ride height? I really want the GTR face but need to know if trimming the fender or adding camber will be necessary(sp?). I am open to what tires to run in order for fitment and these wheels are purely for looks.

You'll need to roll/trim/modify the rear fenders if you want to run a wide tire that fit's well on a 17x9.

If I did a 1 inch drop all around would trimming the fender be still be enough?

Maybe. I'd recommend wheels with a higher offset. 17x8.5 +45 to +48 would fit perfectly.

17x9 29mm offset will require a ton of work to gain clearance for the tires ....
