they will fit height wise. width wise, you will rub sum. could adjust the steering stops and reduce turn radius, or get new rims with less backspacing

also if your rear axle is not perfectly centered they might rub the springs. (stock rims)

If it's stock I don't see why they would rub the springs. Axle position isn't adjustable.

I dont think they would rub the springs but they will rub at full turn easily fixed by adjusting steering stops
