Default Need to Roll Fenders?

I was wondering if, with Eibach Prokit springs on stock struts, I'd need to get my fenders rolled to fit 17x8's (i.e. rota boost rims) without rubbing.

Can anyone shed some light on what I need to do / what I need not worry about...?

it depends on the tires size as well. What size are you planning to use? Most of the time 17x8 Rota should be fine unless you run anything bigger than 235.

if you have a sedan your all set, if you have a wagon you will prolly need to roll them. i think they would rub over big bumps.

245 40 17 will fit without rolling as long as you are not slammed with no camber.
