No chance. 1" larger diameter than stock. You will rub big time on any kind of turn. If you want to see what I mean, turn your wheel to full lock the go out and see how close your stock tire is to the fender well. You have about 8-10mm clearance only with stock wheels and no spacers. Less if you have wider wheels and/or spacers.
