Default Is lift required for 15" camaro rims?

I picked up a set of 15' camaro rims and planned on blasting them and powder coating then mounting my 30X9.5X15's
I have done the reading and I think they will fit my 05 base 2dr at stock height without fender trimming
Looking for a yes or no answer from you guys that have these rims

these rims and tires

i think those camaro rims have 4.5" backspace, you'll jam up against the rear of the front fenders if you try to turn at stock height. just tried it with s10 extreme rims that are the same offset, ended up grabbing firebird rims with 6.875" offset as a temp measure. I think you may be able to do it if you cut out almost all of the rear of the front fender up to the door. Otherwise probably need a body lift. Nice rims though, would look awesome especially in black.

Not true. Some blazers will rub with only 30s because the backspacing is so low. I know I had to trim a decent bit to make 31s fit. They will probably slightly rub with 30s. But this matter is really pretty subjective because no blazer is the same. The aging process could change how the torsion bars sit, different packages that blazers came with... You never know until you try, that's all I have to say.

like i was saying rex majority of the time u need to lift it i got offset rims on my 4 door and run 31s and had massive fender trimming. my tbars are also sagging alot and gonna install new zr2 ones to correct the issue. u can probably get away with the tires and rims with a tbar crank
