I have the 315 HTR Z's on my 03 and they run fairly narrow when compared to other brands.
If you're at stock height or slightly lowered you won't have to worry about rubbing the inner fender. That'd be the most painless course of action if you are worried about rubbing.
FWIW I once threw on my 315's on my brother in law's 01 GT, factory height, quad shocks untouched, and they did not rub.
I ran a 275 BFG that was just a hair narrower than the 315 Nitto it replaced. Nittos and Sumis run real narrow, some BFGs run real big. Went from one extreme to the other. Anyway, it was a 26.6" tall tire out back lowered 1" and it did not rub at all. That was on 18x10s with the quad shocks still in place. The 18s replaced 17x10.5s and the quads did not need removing but had to be flipped. I have run other 17x10.5s and 18x10.5s on other SN95 based cars and had to flip the quads there too.
Honestly while the wheel is off I'd just go ahead and flip the quads. It takes only a few minutes with hand tools and its all right in front of you. No shenanigans involved, like... it probably takes longer to get the wheel off... Even if it doesn't have to be flipped its going to be a hair clearance if you get away with not flipping them. In most cases anyways.
