Wheels

I was wondering if someone could tell me if these wheels would fit ok, is the offset good and would I have to get my fenders rolled?
Thank you for any info.

wheels will fit. Overall diameter of wheel and tire will be larger than original which can cause some issues but not too serious.

What kind of issues? Right now my speedo is reading 4 miles per hour faster than I am really going, I was thinking it would be closer to true speed with these.

Maybe.
There could be some rubbing but probably not. Increased unsprung weight means poorer performance, fuel economy etc. Just minor. No biggie. Possible speedo error but maybe not for you. The biggest reason that I would cahnge the rubber is basically asthetics. The car will look slightly "less right??" It will be a bit tall too.
