10" wide wheel and not rolling fenders?

Anyone running a 10" wide wheel, lowered, and not rolling fenders? Looking to see if there is a way around it. My LX is lowered 1.5" and I'd like 10" wide wheels, but just had the car painted before I considered rolling the fenders.

Stiff as hell suspension and keep the rear end light i.e. don't be hauling around a 100lb subwoofer and your spare tire in the back and you'll be fine. Redbird97 is running 10's on his car and I've fit 285's on 9" rims on mine without rolling the fenders.

Depends heavily on offset as well. an 8" wheel with low offset can rub, while a 10" wheel and high offset wont. Bigger obstacle is inboard clearance, with 10s the parking brake cables usually need to be anchored away from the inner rim

Agreed. I'm looking at 10" wide wheel with +40mm offset. 12" sub in the trunk with nothing else. I'll zip tie the parking brake cable away.

I have a 19x10 with 295/35 on the rear. No spacer, the brake cable is very close. Fills the back nicely. No need to roll the fenders

Thanks to all. I found a 19x9.5" w/ +40mm offset that I like better. Knowing your info. from the 10" wide wheel helped me pick the 9.5" knowing that it will fit w/o fender roll.
