    Will this size tire fit a stock rear end, without having to roll the rear fenders.

    They should fit easily as long as the offset is correct,

    That is an Fibremotive IMSA Camel GT front nose. It was part of a kit of the nose huge flares and a wing. Similar to the one picture attached ..I was going to make my own version of the IMSA Camaro. But they went out of business when i saved up the money. So I built it the way pictured ,with all sorts of "toys" underneath Some are no longer in prodution 5529277575_d2325a91e8_b_26512224230_o.jpg ,And it would br scary to add the recites up.So I won`t

    Probably 4.5 is the way to go. I'm running a 18x9 with a 5" backspacing and a 275/40/18. I could probably have gone with a little more backspacing but the rim cost increased dramatically. I did have to trim a little sheet metal from the wheel lip, approximately 1/8" inch from my left side only.
