Hi, does anyone know a good a fairly cheap place to ROLL and PULL fenders. Looking to fit wider rims and tires, and thought you guys must know of a good place.

pulling and rolling is 2 different things, by pulling it, you'll need a paint job.

by rolling it, you just compress the fender lip.

I am aware of the fact that they are different, but if you pull the lip of the fender outwards and not ruin the paint then I don't see how it will ruin your paintjob.

When pulling you will need to repaint the fenders, otherwise you havent pulled it enough to make a difference

cant you roll the fenders and continue rolling to push them out?
essentially pushing to create a pulled fender?

before acheving the pulled effect, the paint will crack.

Yes that what I did and NO it will not crack if you know how to do it, but again ... I didn't use fender roller tool to roll and pull the fender. We're talking about my front fenders, different story w/ my rears. :)

well, with the roller, it will crack the paint, and thats from a experience. But I dont know about other method, maybe not.

^^^ Yes, it will ... or you could use heat gun and heat the fender a bit, to flex the metal and paint, but ! dont use it too long, otherwise the paint will start bubbling.

If I can heat my fender up with a heat gun and pound it with a mallet to roll and flare it out without cracking the paint, I don't think a roller would if you're slow with it. The trick for me was heating the paint + metal up really hot.. almost to the point of the metal turning reddish.
