Thanks,

wheel and tirezone www.wheelandtirezone.com

i went to the one on dixie/eglinton. the last 10 times i asked he always said $75 per fender.

then a month ago when i went to do it, it ended up costing me $50 per fender + tax. cuz he said it was easy to do.

What do I need to look out for? How can I avoid potentially expensive damage to the vehicle? What exactly does this process entail?

Thanks,

well if you want to avoid damage to your car, then take it to a pro, some place like W&T ZONE, because i believe they guarantee a clean job, other wise, you can get the tool somewhere and do it yourself, but the main thing to watch out for is your PAINT chippin when your rolling the fender

Wheel and Tire Zone is your best bet. They do them all the time. If you get asked "Are you going to get a new paintjob anytime soon?" Answer NO, then your set!

what my friend did back in indonesia, he grinds the paint of the inner fender that you want to roll ... that way the paint will stop right there, it wont crack and chip the paint to the outter fender

How likely IS the paint to crack during this process?

It'll be fine...they recommend doing it on a warm day though because the paint is more plyable. Wheel and tire zone did mine and no problems...they're just not very plesant to deal with.

i saw some shop use heat gun to heat the fender before they roll it

i was worried about the same thing. but u should be ok at W&Tzone . and yes they do preheat the fender before rolling it. the whole thing took me 30 min if not even less then that.

Pain in the ass but well worth it. Just ask me and Windsor318i. Sweaten our balls off at 12am rollen fenders. Make sure you heat up the paint before rollin.

there is no visible difference on the outside of the fender, it's just the inside that is being rolled up so it doesn't rub against the tire.
