Wait, you have SSR lightweight wheels and you are going with heavy Rota wheels why?

SP1's aren't really lightweight(compared to the Comps)....but are better wheels than the Rotas....as much as I like Rota's

The quickest way would be to check your rear fender lip and see if you have the additional clearance. If not even then rolling should do the trick.

I like your current wheels though too.

You will likely have to roll the fenders, but they will fit fine if you do. My friend has 255 40 17 Azenis 615's mount on Rota Torques and had to roll his rear fenders to get them to clear. They come about .5" from the edge of the fender with -2* camber in the rear.
