Which Planet Bike fenders should I get for my 26" MTB Dahon Jack Folder?

I need fenders for my Dahon Jack but I don't know what size to buy. The original tires are 26" x 2.0" and I am planning to change the tires to 26" x 1.25" or 1.0". I'm pretty sure if I were to stick with the original 26x2.0 tires I would need the Planet Bike Full ATB (60mm wide) but I since I am changing the tires to thinner 26x1.0 or 1.25 tires I would probably need a thinner fender right? or am I wrong? so if I need a thinner fender will this Planet Bike Full Hybrid/Road Fender (45mm wide) work for me? The thing with the Full Hybrid fenders is that it's Road tires up to 27 x 1.25in or 700c x 35mm and the ATB fits tires 26"x1.75" to 2.25". Will it matter if I fit a 27" fenders onto my 26" tires? My tires will be 26 x 1.0 or 1.25....so which one should I buy? Is it better to have wider or tighter fenders in terms of water splashing?

Here are some links that I have been looking over and over again trying to figure out what I should get...maybe you pro's can help me..thanks in advance.

Clip-ons wont interfere with the fold , If they do, you pop them off.

but clip-ons don't protect you from getting wet as much as these full fenders right?
