Nah, I got my fenders rolled by that fender rolling tool. The guy did it in the first place didn't use a heat gun and cracked my paint... he also damaged my fenders. I was a little pissed but that's happen when you get side jobs... :(

I got it rolled again by a friend cause it wasn't rolled all the way through.

Aww sorry to hear that... but I doubt people are lookin at the paint judging by the wheel/tire selection you have.

I rolled them and flare the fonts a pretty good bit. I used a baseball bat I used a article from super street magazine to do it.

Re: The "Will This Fit??" Thread

i have a set of gram lights. i have no idea what size of tires i should purchase without having to roll the fenders.

17x7.5
+40mm offset
5-114.3 bolt pattern
17.5 lbs lightweight

is the stock tires the only size i can get to prevent rubbing?

i think you can, i wouldn't recommend it unless you have experience rolling though, you may crack paint unless you do it right

17x7.5 with a +45 offset? Would I rub under any circumstance? I lie to corner pretty fast.

That will be fine, if you stick with 225/45/17 tires.

What are the max dimensions you can have on a hatch in 18s without having to roll?

18x8" et50 w/ 225/40/18 comes pretty close but doesn't rub at all. Might be able to get away with a slightly higher or lower offset or 235/40's if you're not lowered a lot. Anything wider though, and you'll most likely need to roll to prevent rubbing a little bit.
