Default What size wheel fits fender with rolled/tab relo?

I'm sorry if this has been asked, but I went through bunch of topics, in search of possible wheel set up without fender mod.
Decided to just roll / tab relo the fender and call it a day. Way too limited option with stock fender.

But in that case, up to what size wheels does it fit? in regards to offsets mostly.
I want to run 225/255 or 255-square setup with 17" wheels.
I was originally looking at PF01 17x8+50 / 17x9+60 for purpose of keeping stock fender, but since I decided against keeping stock fender, what would be other options?

Thank you for taking time to answer my question!

Generally the +40 to +50 is a good range to shoot for. You can dip into the +35 to 40 but you start really pushing it at that point. Width plays a huge role here as well since the wider the wheel the higher the offset needs to be for it to fit. A wheel that 7 inches wide with a +30 offset fits very differently than a 10 inch wide wheel with a +30 offset.

Lots of people run 17x9+45 square with a 255/40/17. I would consider this the maximum in terms of outward tire poke for the stock front fenders. I run This size in the front of my oem rolled fenders and it is very very aggressive. I needed to run -2.5 camber to not rub on bumps. And the wheel can’t be turned much when going up driveways or you risk cracking the fenders. So if you want something that runs good go with something less aggressive than a 17x9+45 255/40 size.

I have PF01 SS 17x9 +48. 245/40 square. The rear are tuck in nicely. The front is poking out. I have to roll a little bit.
If I have a choice I will:
  • 17x8 +50 in the front with 225 or 235.

Square wheel fitments in the same offset always look like the fronts stick out more then the rears which I find odd looking, and if they are aggressive enough you will have problems rubbing up front. OP mentioned running 225/255 stagger. This will open up your wheel choice avenues a considerable amount with rolled fenders. A good compromise somewhere in between is usually running a 235/255 or 245/255 stagger to help fitment issues up front. This can even be done on square rims if a staggered option is decided against.

^Tire specs aren't really helpful without wheel specs. Thats also a pretty big difference in tire size front to rear in both width difference and sidewall height.

17x7.5" Front and 17x8.5" Rear... I forgot to mention front fenders are rolled and rear fenders are rolled and very slightly pulled.

Give offsets too.

Also 265 on a 8.5" wheel seems silly.

There is no reason to go wider than a 225 front and 255 rear on those widths. Hell even the 225 255 is pinched on those wheel widths.
