youll most likely set an abs code cuz the front tires will be spinning way faster than the rear it wont cause any problems other than no abs and the light will be on

no the wheel well is the metal tub attached to the fender then the inner fender would be the inside skeleton of the fender or the lip so no a wheel well is not the same as the inner fender and yes the wheel well does sit lower then the fender

There you go. That is a definate answer as to what size tire will lay without hacking up the front inner fenders. Now get to it. And take pics when you lay.

You may be ok with 225/50/15's. My first gen layed with them on but I couldn't get my hand in to see if they were touching the inner fenders or not, so yeah, they'll lay, but I'm not sure how hard. I've also heard 205/60/15's will work but I don't know about that for sure.
