They should fit. Theyll look like balloon tires on those rims but they will fit on them. Theyll also fit under the fenders fine. At full turn, it might rub on the spring a bit but you should be fine. You might have to trim out the little valence under the bumper though, it could rub. Mine rubbed for a bit with a 6" lift but it went away when i ditched the 12" wide rims and went to 10"s. Yours are 7" so it will be close. Get those clippers ready!
