WHEN I RAN 14X7 CHINAS ON MY 84 REGAL THE REAR TIRES WOULD RUB ON QUARTERPANEL LIP... I THINK YOURS WILL RUBB ESPECIALLY IF YOU ARE USING SPACERS..

Personally homie i wouldn't do it, i ran 14x7 supremes on my regal back in the day with 175/75 and then 175/70 and they were REALLY CLOSE to the lip of the fender especially the 70, and that was after i trimmed the fender-lips for clearance. i can only imagine what they'd do with 14x8s, even if you didn't set it up to lay i wouldn't want to take a chance of them rubbing if you dumped it or worse, driving it dumped with passengers.

Yea bro even stock height, if you hit a bump or load it down with passengers youre still taking a chance with that extra inch width.
