    i was able to squeeze mh racdemasters 325/50/17's on my car, same setup. i have chrome zr1's. i guess the ones i got a hold of must have an insane offset because i didnt have to hammer or alter anything. sooo... that being said, i think the 315s you ordered should fit just fine, as long as the profile size is small enough, like a 30 or a 35.

    I wouldn't fender roll just for fear of spidering I have 2 friends with 315's and they used a hammer and a grinder to help them fit. My buddy who does it frinds out that bondo to the metal repaints it and smooths up the lip. A grinder is $30 if you don't already have one.

    i have the 315/35/17 555r and no clearance issues..when you put them on jack the abck of the car up by the axle though...if you do it on the frame it relaxes the suspension and you will hae to modify your bump stop...if you do it by the axle will keep tension and the bumps top goes inside the wheel........may need a little hammering on the front inside edge of wheel well but not to bad!
