Fender rolling/shaving - M3 mirrors...

Hey guys cars coming along nicely, just got KW V2 coils on my car and some new wheels.. 19x8.5 et 35 F 19x9.5 et 33 R...

Anybody know a good place in NJ or if somebody has a fender roller? Or someone who is BadAss at fender shaving? My rear passenger is rubbing on dips and bumps and want to go a little lower...

Also, more of a special question, has anyone done an OEM M3 mirror retrofit on their sedan? If so I could use a serious hand on it, ( swapping out mirror motors and shaving baseplate) I read up on the rogue DIY but would love some first hand help on doing it. Yes I'll pay lol...

Thanks guys let me know!!!

Shave the rubber out? Because i can take the rubber out as well. I meant to actually shave off the inner part of the fender that rubs on the wheels.

Oh, man...

All of you who are doing this, I sure hope you've fixed real problems before spending money on wheels that don't fit that create other problems for you. If you're that tight, then start playing with camber, you'll go through tires quickly, and I don't want to think about what your handling might be like...to say nothing of the mpgs and acceleration you lose with huge tires that you need to cut apart the car to fit them on.

Just saying. As you were.

All my preventative mods are done, cooling system, replaced all suspension ins and outs that were showing more then normal wear, I simply have slight slight rubbing on my rear passenger side tire. I'm running 225 35 tire on 9.5 rear wheel et 33. Because its a sedan and has the least fender space it needed a roll. Also re sprayed any areas that could have potential rust. I wasn't crazy tight. I just put KW v2s on the car to upgrade the suspension. I wanted to actually be able to lower the car. Anyway. No more rubbing

Pumpin,

I've seen many cars and many of them frighten me for their owners...just saying. "Oh, it only rubs when people are in the back, or only on bumps." To me, that's an accident waiting to happen.

I can carry 1,000 pounds...the full load according to my door jamb. I can also drive in deep(ish) snow, over potholes, over speedbumps and up steep driveways.

Sorry...I haven't complained in a long time...just came out of me. All of you, just be careful and put function ahead of form. That's all I'm saying. Stop looking at the gap thinking tighter is better. Often, it's more dangerous, less functional, slows you down, and wears out tires faster (because of the extra camber you need...and I've seen crazy camber!).

Just be careful and make sure your priorities are where they should be--safety, handling, and performance--then you can play all you want (and you can anyway...it's not my car and not my life...I know that). Still, just trying to be a 'father figure' in case some of you don't have Dads knowing what you're planning!

Thank you d max for the concern. And I completely understand where you are coming from. But simply put, the roads in NJ and NY are just too awful. I know the wheels being 19 inches aren't what's best for the car. I know the 33et is not what's best for the car. But still car can perform,handle, and function at a high level of security if other supporting mods are performed. I'm not hella flush or stupid low if that's what you thought I was getting into. .75 inches is how far I want to lower my car (from sport susp).

Thank you though for the concern.
