Stock wheels yes, tires depending on the size. With a 4" in the front you'll want to have a 25" tall tire so you don't rub. I'm running a 245/45/18 which is about a 25.6" size and I rub on sharp turns and big bumps.

i have run 225/60/16's which are 26.6 wide, and does not rub what so ever, i think the reason yours rub billy is the width, but winter time i run stock size tires, and it scrubs the inner fender wells on hard bumps

stock size

with the slightly smaller 16's
