Did TMS do your fenders? They offered to do mine like that, but I declined.

Question for you all - are you guys using after market rear chamber arms???
I'm running with 265 in the rear of my ci and I'm not getting any rubbing at all. Fenders haven't even been rolled - but the inner side of the tires are getting @#$!. Can the stock chamber arms help bring back the chamber?
I'm sure once the chamber's back to stock I'll get some rubbing issues.
Any suggestions are appreciated.

Mike

Actually...it does work...more solid just means you have to pry harder...check this out, I went to HW Motorsports in Garden Grove, Ca and they charged me $50 a fender..I figured it was a good price to pay because it was a reputable shop and the guy probably does it all the time...the guy told me to hold on, went into the shop, came back with a metal bar, and started doing it by hand inch by inch....I was pissed off for a couple reasons:
first...if I knew how easy it was i would have saved $100 and done it myself
second..."what a ghetto way to do it"

At least it was rolled evenly and the tires don't rub...
