fender rolling....

anyone have any negative feedback about this procedure? Looking to get it done this Friday by a local custom shop. They said they heat up the paint before rolling but cannot gurantee no cracks. Only $120 bucks for the two rear fenders......do I have reason to be concerned?

I don't think you should be concerned if the shop is used to doing it. Many people have had the procedure done without any adverse effects. There shouldn't be any cracks if the shop is reputable!

thanks...did some searching and now I'm wondering if the extra 1/2" will be enough. I purchased some Borbet VS 17"x8" for winter wheels and rub on sharp corners or large bumps in the rear.

wow, you rub with 17's?? Yikes.

In any case, I have a set of M3 wheels on my 330 and I had the 2 rear fenders rolled for 175. Most reputable shops will have a tool to do this, and as well can guarantee they won't mess up the paint. If they do...they're abody shop lol, make 'em fix it

You must have cracked springs, or your struts are about to go, I put 8.5" and 9.5 19" rims with tires: 245 front and 275 rear. I had to rolled them because of the drop, but even without the fender roll it was running smooth. Paid $150 in a reputable shop. No cracks or chips

not sure what the offset is since I bought these wheels off craiglist to use for winter only but they stick out pretty far, almost flush with the fender. so you guys think that my springs are worn that much to causing them to rub?

You really need to check the offsets, they aren't inscribed inside the rim? That will tell you whether it's the offset or the springs. DAMN, $150 - $175. I took my car to the most reputable place in NJ and got it done for $85 + tax!

Had my fenders rolled with no negative effects so far. Paid $75 locally in Dallas for both rears. Gotta love hook ups.

Cut out 98% of my rubbing. With a fully loaded car (road trip, two people, luggage, two dogs, two cats - don't ask...) and she only rubbed three times on a 300 mile trip. I think I would have bottomed out on stock wheels on those dips, but that is why I said 98%.

I am runing 235 35 19 fronts and 265 30 19s rear. Front offset is 40 and rear is 35. For reference.

i got mine done for 90 for both rears, they heat it up and hammer it down, no problem, they said if you need more clearance we have to cut the lip but dont recommend it since the fender may get wavy due to taking away the structure.
