You shouldn't, at least I didn't when I had rims/tires with those exact measurement specs.
What i've been told though is that it can vary from tire to tire too.
I dont think you'll really need to unless you get 235 or 245 width tires.

It depends more on the offset, if the wheel is sitting out too much you can have problems rubbing even if the rim is not too wide or the car too low....

I had 18x8.5" AC Type III's on my ride with an offset of 43. I was running Dunlop Sport W-10's with a 225x40ZRx18 all around.

I had to roll the rear fenders.

After that, no problems with even 5 people in the car.
I got mine rolled at Wheel and Tire Zone on Eglinton for about 80 bucks. They did a really good job. The edge is nice and smooth and they did not crack any paint. they have an edge roller there.

Sanj,

They have one of these? And did you seal the rolled lip with silicone or something so no water/dirt/salt sits in there?
