How much clearance after arch rolling on M3?

Can anyone tell me the following info for an e46 M3. Arch rolling the rear, using a heat gun & a proper arch rolling tool.

1- Max clearance if only the lip is rolled?
2- Max clearance if the lip is rolled & pulled? (While not distorting the arch shape)


Thanks in advance.

I recently put the new Michelin PS 4s 1n 295/30/19 on the rear.
rolled the lip as you stated, eastwood fender roller with heat gun.

I pulled the arch a little. wasn't trying to, just didn't realize that it was happening.
