Default quick tire and wheel advice/opinons

I am going to be lowering my 05 wagon. I plan on getting the fenders rolled also. I am going to get rpf1s 17x8 and want to run a 235 on there. Should I run a 235/45/17 or 235/40/17? I know I should be good to go after fender rolling. Also, will 235's fit in the front or would I have to roll the front also. Thanks

So 2 Questions

1)17x8 wheel 235/45 or 235/40 tires?

2) would I need to roll front fenders along with the rears to fit 235's on a wagon or are just the rears fine?

Listen to your Uncle.

I run 235/40-17 tires on 17x7.5 wheels on my wagon (stock ride height) and there's tons of room.

As long as you don't go with anything more aggressive, drop-wise, than Prodrive springs, you'll be A-OK without rolling.
