your stock fenders are good for about 8" wide at +48. Many wagon guys have rubbing issues even with 225 wide tires at offsets below +48. What you've just suggested will be a full inch past your fenders. Rolling them wouldn't help, you'd have to remove them entirely.

It can't be understated how much further out from your fenders those wheels would stick.

Too big and WAY too low of an offset.
