Kind of want 5mm spacers in the rear.. fenders should be getting rolled soon!

Hi man, are you rolling the guards because you're adding spacers, or because you're going lower. How low are you going?

I believe he's going to roll them because he's going to throw some spacers on the rear wheels.

I'll be rolling because I am going low.
I will probably add spacers before I roll though.
I'm going about 2 inches lower than my stock sport suspension.

I'm really loving the look of the 19" V710's just wondering if I would have to roll fenders when I go to lower the car and if this size wears are tires more fast?

Fender rolling is not necessary to run them on factory height, but depending on how low you go, you may get some rubbing from time to time. Our specs are fairly safe though, and we have quite a few customers of ours that are lowered without much of an issue.

As far as the tires are concerned, you shouldn't notice any abnormal wear as long as your alignment is in check.

Thanks, part of me wants to sell these and get the same setup in 18's, but damn it looks too good!

I have the worst luck with tires.

If you have a sedan, then yes you will most likely have to roll the fenders when you lower your car (depends on current height and height you plan to be at after you drop it). My car is a ZHP, it was already lower than a non-sport (and sport, but not by much) e46 sedans. I used an H&R sport cup kit (ended up only dropping about a 1/2" from stock height) and I had to roll mine.

A VMR Wheels rep might be able to suggest a "square" setup with the correct offset to perhaps eliminate the need to roll the rear fenders. I don't know if this exists or not though. I have a "staggered" setup (rear wheels are wider than the front).

Fender rolling sounds a lot more scary than it is. I did mine myself, just do your research and take your time. By "research" I mean read up on it, I'm glad I did or else I would have not gone ahead and removed the under-coating. The "roll" wouldn't have turned out as well if I hadn't done this first.

19x8.5 ET35 all around with 235/35/19 tires will work, but if you're planning on going with a 19x9.5 rear, I would recommend 255/30/19 tires. Otherwise, fender rolling WILL be necessary!
