So if I just dropped back an inch on the actual width of the wheel, everything should be peachy?

Well, since it's the tire that rubs, I'd say you're *probably* OK with those wheels with 215/245 tires. Particularly if you run some camber.

Meh.

Seems like it would be so much less of a headache to just roll the damn fenders.

Finding a wheel that I can just throw on and go is harder than I thought it would be.

What is a popular offset/size on the PF01's? Car will be stock ride height for a while, but looking to lower ~1" soon. Should I stick with a 17? I feel like if I'm giving in and rolling the fenders I might as well just get an 18? I like the way your S sits, what do you have?

There are pros and cons to 17 vs 18. I will say this, unless you are planning on the task of fitting wider then a 10"/255 set up which is totally doable without much trouble, stick with 17's. They are cheaper for rims and tires and lighter weight. I opted for this, and then later decided to have the barrels cut and widened to accommodate more rubber because I liked the wheels that much and could. The wheels in my sig are the pre modded version with 215/8.5 +40 up front, and 245/9.5 +38 Rear. The rear fenders were cut/rolled.

If you like the RPF1 the 8/9 +45 will fit without rolling fenders if you stick to the factory 215/245 and run some decent camber in -2 range.

As for the PF01, id have to double check but I think they make a 9.5 +55 which is a accommodating size for all the way around with some extra work up front. You can up the tire size with this width/offset as well. Depends on what your after, looks? Performance? Or finding that perfect balance of both which is the hardest part, but rewarding.

would the 2 degrees of camber be for the rear only or all around for the RPF1s? I've been looking at that exact setup for my AP1 but didnt want to get my fenders rolled. (currently has AP2V2 wheels on it)would a slight roll benefit me? also I was considering dropping the car 1-1 1/2 in

If you are lowered at all, you will rub with the 8/9 +45 with 215/245 tires. I had that exact combo, even caught my front fender during a turn. The bottom line is a fender roll isn't a big deal and will open up a much wider range of wheels that will fit and look better too.

I think thats what I've decided to do. A roll and run the RPF1 17x8 +45 f and 17x9 +45 r with the 215/45
