Default Do I need to roll fenders for 225/45/17?

Just like the subject says, if I get Tarmac 2 rims and put 225/45/17 tires on them, would I need to roll the fenders? It's a 2004 WRX sedan.

Thanks

i am 99% sure that your setup will not rub. 1% for doubt's sake, simply cuz it rubs on a wagon, but only sometimes, depends on tire. so with the sedans fender flares it should be fine.

I just put eibachs and konis in my 02 wagon and I'm running Kumho 712 in 225/45/17 with no rub.
I am surprised by this cause it look pretty close, maybe the konis play a part in this, I'm not sure.
On a sedan you should be fine, you guys get the flared fenders, bastards!

Have you lowered the car at all?

Nope, not lowered, maybe some time in the future I'll lower it a little bit.
