Rolling fenders

This is a feeler to see how many would be interested in this, or if anyone has another solution then please let me know.

I have to roll my finders I looked at the tool for this on the tirerack site and it is expensive to own, but I was thinking if enough people were interested in this then I would buy it and let people borrow it for a small fee, and go from there.

If someone has the tool and would let me borrow it I would be willing pay for this too. I just really need to get this done soon.

if you are rolling 'em just cause of rub, theres no need to. i reached under there while just standing next to it, and you can feel a tab thats almost 2 inches long, i had the worst rub and it was cutting my tire, all i did was pinch it in between my 4 fingers and the palm of my hand on the outside on the paint. it went in about 1/2 inch. i test drove it and was just like "why the hell didn't ford do that!" hope this helps.

Sounds like you're talking about the front piece that's there for the fender liner. Rolling the fenders usually happens in the rear. I had to do it on the Mazda 6. It's time consuming, but it's well worth it!

No ill effects after rolling my car completely. Just take your time and enjoy the outcome.

Mine are the stock SVT euro wheels. So, I think, a 40 offset.

oh and another thing, my buddy just did his legacy with a baseball bat, rolling it on the tire with the top of the bat in the well, and just go real slow and pry it off the tire upwards...maybe something to think about cause you would never know he even did anything.
