Would I clear the rear or would I have to roll the fender ? My coils are 8k front and 10k in rear. If u bounce back only moves 1/4" would prefer not to roll if possible

I was lowered on style 42s (same offsets and width as style 5s) and didn't rub at all, my car wasn't as low and I was running 215/45/17 tires.
