ive been looking into getting wheels also and reading up on it, 18x10.5's in the rear i think your good i think with 11" wheels you would need to.

Depends on the offset of the wheels...

Judging by the sizes, Id guess you're running some type of Corvette replica wheel. If so, they tend to have a higher offset and tuck in pretty far. In that case, no, rolling the fenders isnt necessary. However, if you chose to run a 1" or 1.25" spacer adapter like most, then you will need to have them rolled

the 18 x 10.5 is 56mm offset in a 305/35 and the 17 x 9.5 is 54mm offset in a 275/40
