Love the look of Advan RSII
RSII 17x9+63 with a 2mm spacer. Yes if you use full steering lock you will rub the lower control arm and yes under full compression on track you will rub the inner fender. Still worth those minor drawbacks if you do not want to roll and pull fenders. I am rolled though as a precaution (I eventually gave in after many years of not being rolled).

So all in you're running 17x9 +65. It seems that with the 17x9 + 62 setup with 245 40 17 there is still rub on the control arm and potential to catch one of the fender tabs. If you want to safely run a square setup without rolling, and I mean safely as in care free, what do specs do you shoot for?

All in he is running 17x9.0 +61. His wheels are 17x9.0 +63 from Advan, then he added a 2mm spacer which you subtract from the original specs. Basically pushing the whole wheel out 2mm. So he is pushing the wheel further away from the inside suspension and making it closer to the outside of the fender. A safe way to run his specs would be to go with a 245 tire and keep your car stock height. But if you run 255 square with a drop there will always be a chance to grab the fender tab and lift your fender up.

You have that backwards. Adding a spacer reduces the wheel offset since it pushes the wheel outward. I am effectively running a 17x9+61.

The control arm rub is very minimal. I have done it once or twice, but I rarely ever use full steering lock. Technically you can catch a fender tab with the majority of wheel and tire sizes depending on how much you are lowered, camber, and the driving scenario. I think the only 100% safe option out there is OEM wheels and tires. Everything is going to be a small calculated risk. You are either going to hit the inside fender and control arm or you are going to be rubbing the outer fender. You need to decide which one you are okay with.

I'm pretty sure if you're lowered you can even catch fender at full lock on OEM wheels?

If you are lowered enough yes. I destroyed my front fenders on coilovers going down my driveway while my wheels were turned. I will never do that again........
