Question 15x8 +24 fit well in stock fc fenders?

hey guys,

i have a spare set of 15x8 +24 rota slipstreams laying around for way too long, and im wondering how they would fit on a fc with stock fenders? ive read twice that the offset is optimal, but i want a second opinion before getting tires put on. thanks!

They should fit great. I would test fit them without tires just to be sure.

are you going to run a 225/45/15?

i test fitted them, and i couldnt lower the car all the way, but it seems that they stick outside the fender. strange, RETed and another person said it was within spec and a perfect fit. so strange..

It should be a perfect fit with some negative camber.

I run 17x8.5 +30 up front with 255/40-17.

The outside of the rim would be in the exact same spot as mine, but your stretched 205 would allow you to run it with a stock fender lip whereas mine is rolled under.

yeah, you just need some negative camber, I ran a 17x9 +25 on the front with a 255 and it fit with -3.5* of camber
