Fender Rolling Services
IAG Performance provides fender rolling and pulling services for all Subaru models including the WRX, STI, Forester XT and Legacy.
This service is required for mild to aggressive wheel fitments that require fender or rear quarter panel clearance for larger wheel and tire combinations. Rolling the fenders is often used for slightly larger tires or wheel widths. Pulling the fenders is extreme and requires in many cases grinding the fender material as well as pulling it outward. Most pulls provide a .25”-.50” of fender clearance, but some pulls can provide up to an additional 1” of fender clearance.
To complete a fender roll or pulling process IAG also offers custom alignments that can provide additional negative camber to further aid fender clearance.
About the process:
The wheels must be dismounted from the vehicle, the fender rolling tool mounts to the hub. The panel is heated well beyond the century mark and checked with laser temp gun (best way to try and prevent paint cracking). The panel is slowly manipulated into the desired shape while using consistent heat. The wheel is remounted and checked for clearance, in some cases the suspension height and or camber is adjusted.
Aggressive pulls on 2005-2007 STi (with rear fender flares) may pop the rear flares. When this happens, we use a body bonding agent to reattach the flare. This will require that the car be left overnight. For 2002-2007 WRX and 2004 STi's that do not have factory flares, flares and rear 05-07 STI bumper can be purchased and added to vehicles desiring extremely aggressive rolling and pulling on the rear fenders. Call for details.
