And the front fenders. And any other fenders you happen to have. I've tried both 225/50-16 S-02s and 225/45-17 S-03s. Both had major interference on the front fenders. Remove the plastic trim and roll/stretch them and you might have a chance with some severe camber. But when you bottom out hard at full lock, expect some painful noises.

Prodrive WR Sport suspension, for reference...

225/50-16 S-02s:

225/45-17 S-03s (on Rotas) They look fantastic, don't they? :
