Varrstoen wheel question

So im bout to buy myself some varrstoen...17x9 +30 is wat im thinking...its for a DD. But im a lil confused on which size tire to get. Im on coils. Once I get my wheels I wannq cover the tire gap but not slammed. I was thinking of 215/45/17. I dnt wanna roll my fenders or anything. Do you guys have any thoughts on the tire size? If so any suggestions? I would appreciate the help.

I believe you would need to roll your fenders. I have a much more aggressive setup with the varrostoens. 17x9 22 offset and 215 40 17 tires and I have to roll my fenders. You're not running aggressive, but with the tire size you prolly need to.

You want pictures, go here;

I know most people do 215 40 to go lower. That's what I ended up going with so i'd have more clearance. And I don't have pics right now because I went back to my old setup. When i mount the VarroStoens back, ill def post pics. Just wait for more replies, because Im new to the car game, so i dont wanna give any misinformation. But that's a quick one pic I have on how it looked.

Oh wait you're local. That's where I got my wheels from. I'm from SJ as well. They have my car pics on their ebay. Go look at it. They didn't believe my setup will fit and told me to go +30. Haha.

They wanted me to get +30 they said +22 is too aggressive. But I went with the +22 and I have 215 40 tires.

Yeah I have front and rear fenders rolled. For 17x9 22 offset you HAVE to roll fenders and HAVE camber arms. I didn't adjust my rear camber yet because the wheels aren't back on. But you would have to adjust it to clear the back, if not it will rub like crazy. On my drive back to SJ from Oakland, it was horrible. If you hit a pothole it sounds real bad.

Fenders rolled is not that expensive at all. I have a place that I can vouch for. Been there twice, my boy went there once. And some others can vouch for him as well. And I powdercoated my wheels from him as well. And to be honest I got no idea how much camber, still learning on that stuff so the shop will do that for me and ill see what works.
