How much room gained by rolling fenders?

If I were to roll the fenders in the rear, how much room (in mm) do I gain to push out the wheel more?

I just installed 19x10 et38 wheels in the rear with 285/30 tires. They rub ever so slightly on large bumps with people in the back. I'm curious what size spacer I could fit if I were to roll the fenders.

My fronts aren't rubbing but I suppose the same questions applies.

Thanks!

Kind of hard to say, depends on the degree of roll. I would say it's at least 5mm though

You have to figure out where it's rubbing. If it's rubbing at the bumper mounting tab, rolling fenders will not help you.
