Default Need help rolling fenders

Ive got a 2000 RS that is lowered and the tires rub. I have no idea what springs it came with, but they are low. It has 225/45/17 tires on it and they rub in the rear. I got a fender rolling tool, but have no idea hwo to actually do it.

Need advice and instructions on how to roll fenders.

if you have wider offset wheels, there's your reason.. normally I can roll them, but I dont have the fender roller with me at this time.. if you want to set up a meeting time etc, let me know and you can PM me..

I have the tool, so thats taken care of. I do have wider tires, I have 17" Rota Actions. I was told to be very careful because its easy to crack the paint. How much do you have to heat it?

it's colder now in the year, so you should heat it up til the paint feels HOT to the point where you feel you can almost burn your hand.. you'll have to keep just roll a little bit (like 1 min at a time) and keep on heating it.. the paint cracks when the metal starts to cool down (which doesnt take long to do).

What are the chances that you'll damage the paint from too much heat?

Terbow - I could probably get you the tool to borrow, but its a shops tool so they may want some sort of security deposit. I'll findout for you next time I'm at the shop.

MDRex - hopefully as long as the dealership works out i will be able to pick up your tires and with the right offset i wont need to worry about it but otherwise i can give a deposit.
