Rear OE wheels fit if mounted in front?

Will our rear OE (264) wheels and tires fit without rubbing if mounted up front (with camber plates)? Thanks!

Awesome. Thanks. Have you tried it or is it just known based on the measurements?

I had 245s on with no camber adjustments, and i barely rubbed, those were 40 series. Assuming you're at stock suspension height, the tires should clear the fenders. You'll have a slight rub on full lock turns on the front fender liner. But its so slight that you'd never hear it rubbing. I only noticed because there was a small clean spot.

You said it's a slight rub. Is that under full load at speed or just street driving? I'm hoping to use the wheels at the track where the suspension compresses a lot more than street driving.

slight rub is only over harsh bumps, i experienced nothing under full load.
