Honestly, the 45's with 245s on them aren't that bad. If you have stock suspension and want to roll the fenders then get the ET45's with 255 but you need both for it to work.

is it a big issue to roll fenders?

Not really hard no. Might cost you $50-100 depending where you take it.

IMO a 245 on a 9.5" is too close to the limit of the 245 recommended tyre fitment spec. That's why I went with 255's

at least you went with a 255 rear tire. 255 looks a bit stretched to me, 245 looks silly. if i purchase another set of rear tires for this car, im goin 265. if i have to do a slight fender roll, so be it.

i hope people will eventually stop buying +45 rear wheels! it's not that they can't work, it's just tragic... there's so much room back there, but +45 is just not right.

not necissarily. there are people on here that have reported no issues with 255 tires on an 18x9.5 +45mm rear rim (depending on tire selection, camber and fender work). i just mean to say that it's unfortunate that you'd have such a wide wheel, but still have to run narrow tires. with the correct offset (see apex ARC-8 wheels), there's room for so much more tire, and no need to roll fenders or mess with the alignment specs.
