Ok, after a week of driving on my new apparently too wide shoes, I was tired of the rubbing. It wasnt happening all the time but it was a hassle to keep dodging bumps and grooves on a daily basis.

I finally found a place that had the eastwood fender roller around me. They let me...

does rolling your fenders change any appearance on your car? if i roll my fenders to put on wider tires/rims and then i go back to stock will it look funny? i dont think so but i was reading an M3 post saying it would. i also think he was talking about fender pulling(which was also thrown into their discussion) just double checking.

I still do fender rolling on the side in case anyone is wondering. That being said, the rolling is different than pulling. Rolling is just the inner lip not changing the appearance of the fender. This is most commonly chosen in order to clear wider wheels or lower stance.

The pulling is actually putting a flair on the fender making it look slightly more "widebody". I have done this on a few cars and its subtle but makes a nice impression. This is something that you need a little more skill for because if not done properly the paint WILL crack or it wont be uniform on both sides.
