In Reply to: where to roll my fenders in the chicago area? posted by PHAT 328 on June 15, 2000 at 00:59:04:

I rolled the fenders myself after putting 255/35/18s on my H&R dropped '95. Rubbed like HELL until i took an aluminum bat (i started out with wooden, but it doesn't provide enough rigidity) and a heat gun to it. Jack it up and heat the fender well (softens the metal, prevents paint cracking). Stick the bat inbetween the fender and tire. Lower the car until the bat is pressed hard between, but you can still roll it along. Point it more and more upward each time you roll it to angle the metal up. Do the other side. Have a beer.
