it allllllll depends on how the rear "barrel" part is.
I'll post this info for the people going with flares.
15x9 +0 with a wide 225/45 toyo r888.
-2 chamber in the front.
This will clearly rub the fender line (because of the wide tire), but more important is, it will also rub the front bumper to some degree. I needed to cut away the stock fender/front bumper mount and a little slice of the front bumper. It might be possible to change the support arms and push the bumper and fender out.
Lowering will produce camber, yes, to get your wheels and tires to fit properly without rubbing, you will need to roll/pull your fenders for more of a flush look. If you don't think that will produce the results you're looking for, you can add small flares and gain the clearance needed/wanted.The thing I'm worried about is that right now the wheels/tires are sticking out quite a bit from the edge of the fender, and I'm not sure if negative camber and lowering will be able to take care of it. Here's what I'm talking about:
I have some Tein S-Tech lowering springs that I am going to install (waiting on some shocks so I can install them at the same time), so the fender gap will be reduced somewhat. I'd imagine that during the process of lowering that the top of the tires will be angled in toward the center of the car, and I gather that adjusting for some negative camber will also help with that? I do plan on rolling the fenders to take care of the inevitable rubbing that will occur. Am I missing anything?
^this. I'm actually into positive camber adjustment territory, as I sit now, than if I were to be at stock height.depends on how far you drop it. after i spun down my coils, i had a good -3deg in the rears & -2.8deg up front pre-alignment
How far will the wheels be past the fender, using the fender as a measurement outward to the wheel? That's a really weird question and one I can't really answer. I'll assume you drive a 1.6 with stock wheels. Grab a ruler and walk to your car, put it up to the edge of the front wheel, 3.5 inches further out. Go to the rear, 4 inches further out.So Long Champs are to hard to find in 4x100 so it looks like 4x114 is the only way for me to go. I found adapters but they are 25mm thick. The wheels are 15x7 -1 upfront and 15x7.5 -7 out back. how far out of the STOCK, no pulling of the fenders, will they be? I have a hard time justifying going with crazy camber so only the tops are flush. Now that I am writing all this I don't even know what I am asking...ha.
See that's exactly the answer I was looking for, I do have an NA but on 15 inch NB wheels. Still same measurement?How far will the wheels be past the fender, using the fender as a measurement outward to the wheel? That's a really weird question and one I can't really answer.

i guess i can be the guy that posts the NC fitments that ive hadanyone know an aggressive fitment for NC's? got some wheels i wanna shed 5x114.3, got em for sale on my 7 forum but no serious bites yet.
wow you have an excellent memory. I had them in 205/40/17, I did like them.Good for stretching and doesn't run wide like grippy tires (azenis, r1r, etc.)
I didn't like them at all personally but XCLR8TN on the forum did iirc and a couple others
Any pic I post is 15x7 +38 with a 25mm spacer. And crazy wide 195s that might as well be 205's.sorry i forgot to mention, my last picture is a 15x7 +38 w/ a 25mm spacer. itll look close to that, but a bit more flush with 205/50s.
