Well you could just use a baseball bat. But I would really recommend that you bring it to Bimmersport or something and get them to use their special tool for it. I'm pretty sure its only something like 40 bucks a fender or something.

Make sure it's done properly. Like heating the fenders before rolling them.

i think its what it is... the rub was so slight maybe the tire just pushed up on the fender enough to roll it out... none the less the fender still looks the same just no rub...hmm i'll check it out over the winter though

My tires rolled my fenders as well. Running 245/40/18s. No harm done but definately not the right way to go.

http://www.princessauto.com. I just received my fall/winter catalog and the next sale flyer (aug 18-aug 30) they are selling a fender rolling tool for just under $300. It looks interesting! I'll try to remember to scan the ad and post a pic.

well considering metal is stronger then rubber. it's a 50/50 chance you either opened the fenders up a bit or your scrubbed off a few mil from your tires or both. :-)
