Not really German look question - but 1303 wheel knowledge required

Hey all.

This isn't necessarily a G.L. question, but I'm hoping that some of you guys may have the information that I need.

I'd like to fit a set of Gas burner reps (4 lug) to the wifes 1303 cab. Its got standard brakes and standard struts with lowered springs.

I was thinking about fitting 165/65 s on the front and 185/65on the rear, maybe lowering a bit more all round to reduce the arch - tyre gap.Id like the tyres to sit marginally inside the edge of the fender (and clear it!).

The wheels are 15/5.5/22et.

My question is - would they fit under the front arches without fouling the struts? If not, could I get away with a 5mm or 10mm spacer?

I've looked at the diagrams and tools to help, but I'm hoping that someone might have had some real experience with similar wheels / offsets.

Great thanks.

Its got 8 spoke copies on it currently, although I'm not sure of their offset.

Should be good.
