They won't work on your turbines for sure. You would have to take off your quad shocks, tail pipes, roll the inner fender,and do some serious beating in the wheel well to even think about making them work.

I got 295/50/15's on the back of my stang with no modifications. The only problem is that yes the fenders rub and eat up the tire so I need to get them rolled. Anyone know about how much that costs?
