I had my car lowered with stock rims.. No need to roll your fenders. Unless u decide to switch to 18x8 or bigger wheels its a must.. I only got my back rolled currently sitting on 18x8 :]

Get coilovers first then rims. You will be happy you got the coils first.

no roll needed esp the lower you go with stockies but u will need an alignment to correct the toe and correct as much camber as possible with stock the components

I also have coilovers on stock rims with a no gap drop. My car is riding on stances and without any camber mods. It was able to BARELY make correct alignment specs.
