nope..you need the right size offset rims bro to keep your tires from rubbing the struts. now..you can however...turn the tires ( rims ) inside out to clear the struts..but you will need to swap the rims from one side to the other ..then you loose the didrection of your treads..lol. your best bet..find you the right offset rims..this will solve your problem.

the '88's have the struts..these require a odd ball rim for the offset.
