Maybe with a baseball bat. They are cracked and look like they were not done correctly if indeed they are rolled. I would say someone attempted it with the wrong tools, not all is lost though as you should be able to heat them up and roll them flat.

so I test fitted 10mm spacers for the rear... it's rubbing a little bit but it seems that it's only rubbing on the fender lining not the fender itself... there's already a hole on the fender lining due to rubbing...does anyone have the same experience? is there anything I can do to eliminate that?

the rear fenders come "rolled" like that already. its basically a super conservative roll. you can go check out a brand new one with 0 miles at the dealer to see for yourself.

You let the carpet lining rub itself til its all busted up or cut it yourself. You go low n flush you gotta do whatever it takes. This is just a small obstacle.
