Hmm, from the looks of things there is more than enough room but I have not dropped my car yet, dropped plenty in my time so thought it looked fine.
Rolling fenders is not to difficult so will if I have to
I did alot of checking on wheels and offsets, I think you could squeeze an 8.5" wheel with a 42 or 43 offset but only with 235 tires, not 245's.
For 9" wide 48 would be about maxed out with 235's's but that would be really cutting it close, in fact probably to close, more like a 52 or so I would imagine would be best and then you could do a 245 tire, at least I think so as have not done it.
I have 235/40/17's on 8" 35mm and it is about perfect. But, some 235's are wider than others.
