Roll your fenders? A member here runs 315s. He'd be able to tell you what to do.

Buy the tires you want and see if it rubs. If it does, roll fenders. If it doesn't, then it doesnt!

first off what rear wheels do you have? that's what we need to know above anything else.

There's a kit if people running wider than 315s not stock though. If you're lowered you may need to roll the fenders. Depends in the size. If your 17s then you could do a 315/45or40/17 if you're 18s then I wouldn't go any taller than a 315/35/18

Need at least a 10' wide rim. Ran 315-40-18 before and also a 305-45-18. You will rub if lowered 1.5 or more.
