Okay, now for other reasons the question is not likely to result in any useful information. Best we can say is that 45mm for 235/40 usually needs a mild fender roll....but understand there are variables that have a BIG impact on the question of how much roll you need. Unless you are matching the precise height, camber, caster, and tire choice of somebody else, their experience with how much roll they needed for clearance is not very relevant to you and your car.

Ok I understand that from case to another there might be a difference.
I would just like to see what is considered as a mild fender roll.

Hey guys, question for those of you running 17x9 +45 RPF1s on your NCs:

I'm planning on using a 235/40/17 with this wheel, and I understand I'll need to roll the rear fenders, which I'm fine with. However, I'm concerned about the front fenders. Will this setup rub at all in the front? Mainly concerned about rubbing the fender liner/splash shields when turning into a parking spot at full lock, etc.

Thanks everyone!

Too many variables for anybody to give exact answer because it depends on height of your car, tire choice (not all 235/40 are actually same specs, not even close), camber, caster, etc. I can say generally the rub at full lock is so minor that most don't even notice until we have the car on the rack after a year or more of them running that size and we show where it has scratched the plastic fender liner. They shrug, we shrug and tell them it doesn't really matter, life goes on....
