View Full Version : fender rolling required?

10-03-2006, 02:36 PM
Hi all,
seeking wisdom:

Currently sitting in my garage are:
18x8 fronts and 18x9 rears running on 225/40/18 on all 4 rims with a 38mm offset.
Car is lowered 1.4 inches with koni suspension kit.
I have hub rings for them BUT will I need to roll my fenders?
225/40/18 in the rear was not by choice, they were brand new from the original owner so when I wear them out I plan to go 235/40/18.......bottom line question is will I need to roll my fenders at all?

Thank you to all who have replied.

Stating what type of car you are hoping to fit these on would help. :D

well, rubbing in the rear with a passenger weighing less than 100lbs sitting in the back. When she sits behind me and I turn left I hear the rubbing, when she sits behind the front passenger side and I turn right i heard the rubbing.
No one in Windsor knows how to roll fenders any DIY info?
If this continues I might just sell these and get another different set of rims.....maybe CSLs

18x9.0 ET38 is pretty aggressive for an E46 sedan. You definitely need to roll the fenders. Going to 235 in the back is going to make matters worse.

I wouldnt roll my own fenders! Lol. Been to a few place, most places they dun want to take the risk and roll to the max. This means, even after you roll your fenders at those places, it gives u only like 2mm max sucks. But after I went to RMP Motors, they took care of it GOOD! And Im really satisfied with their work on my rear fenders. Call Rocco now.

how much does Rocco charge to roll the rears?

Call RMP dude, I dun even remember, it's like the beginning of summer when he re-did my fender rolling amongst other things.
