Default Need help!

Hey guys I just got a new set of wheels and the times come to roll the fender since I'm rubbing. Can anyone help? I've never done it before and would I need to rent the tool?

I've found putting a baseball bat in between your fender and tire and rolling the car forward to be the best option. No need to waste your money on the tool, I doubt anyone here has used one anyways. These are Subarus

Baseball bat. What could possibly go wrong? Oh, wait. Feel free to come out to Hopkinton to see my son's WRX that was rolled that way. It has the added benefit of cracked paint and surface rust.

Go to a shop and pay to have it done correctly.

^Ditto. You're going to want to use a real fender roller. And if you/your buddy has never done it before, just take it somewhere to have it done. It'll save you a giant headache.
