Noop at wheels

i hope im not re-asking a that has been asked already but i was looking around at some wheels and 15x8 4x100 +25 seems to be what will fit the 90 sedans minus  the tires, i know about anything can fit with modification but i dont want to modify, i just want to bolt some wheels on. I want to check before i put some money into anything.

8" wide with +25 offset...... Depends on the tire, but i think even a 40 may rub. (depends on how low you go. You would need to roll fenders at least, or camber them to pass the rear fender lips.

so i understand everything

15x8 = 15"wheel 8"wide
4x100 = bolt pattern
+25 = offset / how far out it sits from hub

I dont know what i can get away with before i have to "roll fenders" but that process does not look too hard. bottom line is i just want something that fits.

It's case by case. Those specs are right on the edge of what you run with stock with the car lowered. Each tyre(not wheel) even with the same specs will have different clearance. I was running 205/45r16's that cleared fine on the front of my 16x8+28. But those tyres stretched a fair bit.

If you're worried about clearance aim for 15x7 and an offset between +25 and +40.

If you buy those wheels, and you need a bit of extra clearance, you can raise the car and add some camber in to tuck the top of the wheel under the guards more, but it's not ideal, that's why most people roll their fenders.
