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
