Style 287s would be my target, but the general question is whether I can take the new rims and bolt them directly on the hubs as they are now, or whether I need to add any spacers to permit wheel clearance. The drop from the base suspension to the Performance Suspension was modest - maybe 1/2 inch - and I would go with the OEM diameter tire - 225/45s on the front and 255/35s on the back (I think that's right).
Yes, is the answer to your question - no modification required, but check your tire sizes. If you want the wheels more "flush" with your fenders add spacers.
