Most likely yes because when you go up driveways and down the the wheel tucks in and your fender will destroy the tire

Stock suspension no need to roll. But yea after an 1' or a steep bump the tire will go up and hit you're fender. Simple roll will do the trick, either you do it or pay about 100 bucks to get them done

It should be around 29.4 inches tall. That will come close to bottoming out in the fenderwell on a lowered car.

You can make them fit and it looks sexy when they do. If it were me I'd put em on.

Not to jack the thread but I am lowered 2" w/ 17x10.5s with 315s on and I didn't have to roll my fenders. The tires fit under my fenders. If I were to get 18x10s and get a set of 305/35/18 would I have to roll? I would think if I can fit a 315 I should be able to fit a 305 as well.

Yes you would need to roll, my buddy has 305 on his 18's and they rubbed

I'm running 305/35 18 toyo r888 on 18x10 on the back of my Cobra. Sra, no spacers. Rolled fenders and slammed. Caught the edge once and went back and rolled more lip.

For my 28x10.5 slicks I have to raise the rear of the car 1/2 inch or they hit the fenderwell on launch.
