It really depends on how much you roll the fender. You can ether just role the lip of the inner fender that may give you an additional ľĒ, of you can keep going and actually start flaring the fender itself out. You can notice some difference in the appearance of the car but you have to really look for it.

As for running 225 yes you can flare them enough to get them to clear, but that also depends on the offset of your rim I run 225/50/16 on Rotas and I run 225/50/15 on Ozís. the Grids are a 45mm offset so thatís .15Ē closer to the outside of the car I do still have a bit of rubbing when Iím not the track (road racing) but itís not terrible. My OZís do not rub at all. So really it comes down to what offset you have and what tires youíre going to use. Each tire has a section width. But a 1.5Ē droop form stock isnít that aggressive, camber can also make a difference too.
My rides a 2002 SVT track car, & Boosted 2007 ST with the SAP.
The helmet has a special meaning for many drivers. How important is it to you? - It protects my head.

Do you have any special rituals when the helmet is concerned like many have? - I wipe it so that I can see better.
