im looking at these rims that are 15x6.5 with a 38mm offset, and am looking to run 195 60 15 tires on them, however i dont wanna have to roll my fenders.. will i be able to fit these without rubbing on my sportline 2" and 2.2" drop? thanks

You should be OK.

Ive ran sportlines with:

Stock wheel/tire (15x6 52?mmoffset and 195/60's)
16x7 40mm offset with 205/50's (could probably handle 5mm more offset up front before rubbing)

ive ran sports with a 17 with 245 15 on and they had 38 bs and they would rub so don't know how tall those tires r but it may be close with a full car and tight corners and bumps

Did it rub in the front or back? And buickboy, i heard the 05 plus models have more space to run a lower offset in the fenders? Not sure if it applies to me? Thanks

sportlines with 205/45/16. No rub even on rough roads and dropping on speed bumps. 3/4" gap btw fender and tire. And yes the fenders do seem bigger.

05-07 have the same body as the early cars, its the 08-11's that have a little more room
