Looking at 15X9 offset 20 wheels. Do they fit?

Some really envelope back math at 4am on the first cup of coffee says it would be really very tight.  Based on my Rota 15x6 at 42 leaving me about a cm between the tire and the not stock strut tube.  Stock strut tube might give you enough room.  So I suppose spacer to push it out a little.  How much room is under the turbo flare and how low do you want to be...  But I don't think it would take much spacer.

Should I have them cut or roll the fenders on the car?

unless you cut out the original fenders on the car to match the flares, you are restricted to wheels that fit under stock fender...

 

unless you plan on the 4x4 offroader look and jack the suspension up to clear the tires...

Those won't fit without significant bodywork and probably spacers.

 

Then, you will be working really hard to get a reasonable tire to fit without rubbing.

 

THEN, you'll spend a lot of time and money getting the suspension

to maintain a decent contact patch (and handling) with them.

 

 

I vote no.

I say, "Think outside the box".

Get the Wheels & Tires.  

Fit 'em up and report back on your findings......................bwah, ha, ha.

 

..........maybe do a "search".

Thanks for the input. It could be done with modification which is not worth the hassle.

I can tell you 8-1/2" wide, et25 will fit on the rear for sure with rolled lips. 7" wide in the front with rolled lips, and you'll still get some rub on the fender on compression.

 

I can't see 9" wide rims fitting without cutting.....
