Ive even seen some where the rear fenders are rolled and there is plenty of room, doesn't even look like it would be anywhere near rubbing. So correct me if I'm wrong but would they fit if you had spacers in the front (so it would fit over the Brembos) and a slight roll of the fenders in the rear?

I have Tein Flex coilovers [thumbs down] and 27mm whiteline swaybars [thumbs up]

Yes, I have 5mm or 6mm spacers up front to clear the brembos. I can't remember exactly. If you go to wheeldude.com and look at their application charts it'll tell you exactly what you need to clear brembos.
