do what's right,not what's easy
Need professional advice or opinion on body/paint/assembly or cosmetic related issues?Just ask.
what do you mean by pulling the fenders ?
^Bringing the fender out in addition to rolling the lip up. All depends on how aggressive a tire/wheel you want.
^^I should have said aggressive-looking. All to often, this process of fender-bending is a result of aesthetics and not function.
I'm thinking about pulling the back fender out now after reading this thread. I'm getting my car repainted anyways and I was looking for a solution to run a wider rear wheel instead of rear over fenders. Would 18x12 or 19x12 be possible with some pulling? How wide do you think you could go before you start to distort the curves to much?

All ripples are a non issue with a good body guy and the lightest layer of mud. All good paint jobs have mud... as long as the layer is thin.
BTW, with my 19's in the picture above, I origionally would rub ever so slightly at times. Now I have tons of room. So much that the wheel looks to narrow, and it's a 9.5 or 10" rim (can't remember which).
stefan, I have the same fender roller but kind a nervous to use it since I just repainted the car not to long ago...
I've done it before on my old 350z with just leaving it in the sun to warm it up and then roll the crap out of it. What can I do to prevent the paint from cracking?
Theres alot posted about rolling fenders.. any more info on cutting them?.. what tool is used to trim the metal?
i order new wheel
18x9.0 +43 front 18x10.0 +43 rear
what the bist tire size and
do i have to roll or cut front and rear fenders
Here are four pics of my red car with cut rear quarters. They were cut by my body shop when I had the lip spoiler installed and the OEM side skirts color-matched. It's a matter of preference, but I have always thought cutting was better than rolling. My body shop had previously cut the fenders on my black car as well before I went with the Do-Luck body kit, including rear overfenders. My cars are usually lower than most (on coilovers) and I like the wheels/tires to tuck just so. The wheels are 18 x 10, front, and 18 x 11, rear, offsets unknown, with 265/35/18s in front and 295/30/18s in the rear. No rubbing whatsoever, even in attack mode driving.

I cut my rear fenders using a carbon fiber cutting disc and Rotozip. Outlined in this thread by Swantko:

When cutting the fenders, I thought there were spot welds in the part you are cutting off? How do they handle this problem? Also, I assume they have to sand down the sharp edge and give it some sort of coating... ? Do you by any chance remember any of these details Ken?
Both times my fenders were cut, we "saved" the spot welds so as to maintain the structural integrity of the quarter panel....at least that's the theory I go by. My edges are sanded smooth and painted to avoid the ills of dirt, water and general corrosion BS.
