What's the difference between rolled and "pulled" fenders??

Rolling is just flattening the inner lip (no difference on the outside).

Pulling is rolling so aggressively that the fenders flare outward. Hazardous if done wrong, and will very likely need paintwork.

On superm3's car the inner lips were cut off then the fender was pulled - basically the most you can do without adding flares.

Finally someone explains it well! b/c it's easy to mistake "rollling the fenders" (how people usually say it) as physically "pulling" (correct terminology) them and seeing a difference on the outside.

I am resurrecting this thread from the dead....wow, it took some time to find it. I just placed 235/40 R18's in my car....with a 18" BBS CH rim that has a ET35 offset. The recommended tire size was 225/40 R18's, but the tire looked so stretched that I decided after they were gone (they were almost gone after one year of use), that I got a great deal on 235/40 R18's for $425 (Hankook Ventus R-S2's)

it appears that even with my lowered suspension, that everything just fits, but on one side of the car, I can run my finger between the tire/fender and the other...just barely...

When I push in suspension, I do not seem to hit anything....the front's seem fine as there is clearance to turn without issues.....so curious about additional feedback in ET35 8.5 inch rims w/ 235/40 R18 tire...
