Default 15x10 w/ -38 offset Will it clear the brakes?

I am looking at a set of wheels messuring 15x10. The have a negitive offset of 38 <-38>. The tire calc says this is 59mm further away from the strut. Is this enough to get away from the caliper?

Im not sure the 15" part of the equation will clear the front brakes. 16" steelies barely fit.

as far as the 38 offset part, stock is 52.5, so the center of your rim will effectively be 14.5 mm further out than stock.
depending on how tall of a tire you plan to run, those might require fender mods, unless you are going -3" in diameter or something drastic like that

cant say wont work, unless you mean it wont work with stock fenders.

Im sure we could fit 275's or larger on the car if someone wanted to do some custom fender flare work.
