17x9 front rims for square setup

99 box
lowered on H&R. -2 degrees

Looking to try out a square set up but I only have 9" carrera wheels with a 55 offset.

Running a 12mm spacer.

Will these fit in the front with a 255/40/17 Nitto NT01?

Thanks

Check out the link below to a great guide on wheel fitment and spacing/offset.

I have run that wheel same 12mm spacer with a 245/40-17 Hoosier A7 up front, a slight fender roll and -3.6 camber. Should fit, though you could need a smaller spacer with less camber.

The 9" rim needs a spacer but a stock 8.5" up front with 255/40-17 Toyo RR usually fits.

anybody else run this setup that can confirm I don't need to roll fenders?

I have run 17x9 square many times in the past. I typically used the 10 spoke Oem Porsche rims with 55 offset. I run 15mm spacers front and rear with 255/40/17 71R tires. Camber is around 3-3.5 in front and 2.5 in the rear. Fenders are not rolled. No issues.

Note - I run camber plates and GT3 lower arms. I can tuck the tires in quite a bit in the well and have plenty of room between the fender lip and the outside tire. I can also do the opposite and extend my track if I want.
