there is a small lip on the inside of the fender, when you get wheels and tires that are big enough to start rubbing against that lip, you can roll the fender as in bend that lip upward and make about 1/4" of space extra for clearance

I had my fenders rolled at wheel and tire zone in mississauga - for 110 bucks. The price changes based on who you are - not so nice.

Originally he was charging me 150 for both rear fenders and 30 minutes of work that comes out to 300$ per hour until I said i knew someone on the board then it was down to 110$ - still 220 big ones an hour. Most bodyshops/mechanics charge way less than that 70 - 80 bucks an hour. It is not like *they* have a special skill just the right tool.

If someone was a little enterprising on this board they could buy the tool then rent it out to people for a day and still probably make some coin.
