Fenders are not one in Windsor knows what rolling the fender means !
Also running 225/40/18 on all four rims.....not my choice bought them like this.....stretched in the rear....
Mind you that this setup was off an E36.

Anyone else have inputs?
As stated:
-Minimum rubbing with no rear passengers
-rubbing with passengers.
-Anyone in Windsor on this board that know some shop that rolls fenders?

Probably not what you want to hear but what about running a skinnier tire? 245's MIGHT solve your problem.

265 should fit ONLY IF the offset of the rim is perfect and the shape of the tirewall is round, and you are not lowered too much

if you have fenders rolled and still rubbing, not much you can do unless you pull out the fenders more, but that's much more work comparing to rolling the fenders

maybe go with narrower tires

Cars lookin nice and clean... Id suggest goin down on the size.. to 255/30/19 Toyo T1Rs or Falkens. And if the rubbin still persists, go to RMP Motors, they'll fix the problem for u. Im running 19x10s at the back with 245s and even after flaring the rear fenders I still have minimal rubbing, so I went to RMP Motors and they took care of everything. Now 0 rubbing with 19x10s SLAMMED! RMP FTW, they're the only place that could solve THIS problem. Ive been to several places including Wheel & Tire Zone, they sucked. I wouldnt even go there for fender rolling.
