People with 19s, help me out please

I just picked up my 19s from the States today, they looked awesome on the car. I declared them and said they were only worth $400, but the b*tch didn't believed me. haha. I argued with them for nearly any hour before they let me go. lol . I testfitted them in the States but took them off right after because there are a few problems.

The fronts only have 2 fingers clearance, which is fine, but the rear has 0-1 finger clearance. I definitely will have to roll my fenders, but is that the only thing I need to do? I mean, it looks like the wheels are sticking out too much in the rear and the fenders will scrape the tires on bumps and pop the tires? I am not sure, help me out guys.

Oh yah, recommendations for places to roll my fenders for cheap please :thumbsup:

here are the pictures.

What suspension are you running?

If its stiff enough you should be fine with rolled fenders.

Sick rims.

Yep, you just need to roll your fenders.

PM MV325IS, he has the fender rolling tool that he is willing to rent out. It's easy to do yourself, and save the money.

What's the offset of the rims? Are they off an e46 M3??

I had trouble even with 225/35/19 tires on my BBS CH's when I first put them on.... so I had to roll my fenders in the rear and no more problems.

Yes, I can put 4 people in my car and still hit bumps in the road and not have any trouble.

But I refuse to have anyone in the back seats unless it is a serious MUST or if they are girls, those are the only two exceptions.

Sure, but you might have to wait till next spring/summer cuz my car is stored for the winter.

My rears are tucked almost to the point where you can't see part of my tire anymore and you can't fit a pinky inbetween the rim and fender comfortably.

Honestly, roll your fenders to be safe. It really depends how wide you want your tires to be too. I have 18's, but I managed to fit 255's on the back with +35 offset without any rubbing... but it looks pretty beefy from down low.
