bay area help: rolling fenders

sup guys, i recently bought new wheels... before buying, i followed all the fitting recommendations the board had, i got 18 x 7.5's all around wrapped in 225/40/18's and i'm getting some rubbing both in the fronts and rears! i don't understand but anyways, i called around about getting it "professionally" rolled and it costs about $200 to get them rolled... i don't think i wanna spend that much on rolling fenders so now i'm forced to do it on my own...

if anybody in the bay knows how to roll fenders and willing to help a .netter out, i'd be most appreciative... whatever compensation you would require i can accomodate just as long as it's not $200 please... lol...

btw i only rub on hard turns in the fronts and rears, so you can imagine my frustrations since getting all these suspension mods i can't even enjoy them yet because of this...

please help...

Edward, we can talk about this if we meet up at the BOS meet. I own a fender roller tool (just like the Eastwood fender roller used by the shops) and can rent it out to you for a small fee. I don't have much experience using it myself, but it seems very straightforward.

You can use it on both the fronts and rears. You can roll the rear fender lip flat against the fender, then go further if you want to slightly flare out the fender. I may have to do this soon.

You guys willing to let a fellow GS owner in on the fun. I just got some new wheels and rubbing like crazy on the front driver side. Dont have any rolling experience though. I can host at my home if needed I'll have beer for those who make it.

I was under the impression that our front fenders were already rolled..only the rears were not. I could be wrong..

You can either roll or shave the rears, but you're right, most people will just shave the rears because it'll provide more clearance. You can still roll the rear fenders after shaving to flare them out a little as well.
