Fender Rolling

This might be on the boarder of being in the wrong thread, but I really need a shop in Northern VA with a roller who is capable of rolling my rear fenders to fit my track set up with out butchering and cracking the paint. The tires are 255/40/17 and have been told they will fit Pre-LCI rear with no rubbing but will rub LCI so I need a mild roll.

Does anyone know of a shop in Northern VA (bonus points for Arlington) that will take the extra time to heat the paint and ensure a smooth mild roll?

Tell him Mike with the diesel sent you.

What are your offsets, though? I seems odd that you need a roll for a 255 as this is a stock size (unless you're running an aggressive offset or you meant to say "front" instead of rear.

It is the rear with the wider 255/40 r888 tires (I believe the stock tires are 255/35) and it is 17/9.5/35mm offset. The fronts shouldn't need rolling, but the 5mm spacer and -2.8 degrees camber should help.

Thanks for the recommendation!

Yup, your calcs are dead on . Nice setup! It's not so much that the 40 profile is "wider" but rather a bit taller. It's the spacer that may necessitate the roll though.

Where are you putting that sweet setup to use? Summit? I'm hoping to get to to check it out.

255/35 is stock for rears ON 18's

255/40 on 17 is the same exact height as 255/35-18, both 25" tall

It's the lower offset on your new wheels that require you to roll your fenders as they will be sticking out too much. R-comps also run wider than a street tire but the 40 profile on a 17 is fine.

OP: Got a guy down in Fredericksburg if you're willing to make the drive. He's done a couple fender rolls on e46 m3's. He heats and rolls. Real good price too.

PM if interested.
