I've read that its about an hours worth of labor. So $65-70 depending on where you go. You just have to call around and ask your local tire shops.

BTW: What causing the rubbing?

i have the h&r cup kit, and have 18x7.5 wheels with a 40mm offset (wrapped in 215/35). never had the problem with the same kit/wheels on my zx3, but i guess the added hundred pounds or so in the sedan is JUST enough to give it some problems. it's only over big dips, or under hard cornering. it's still annoying as hell. ha ha

I had 60s Mopars, really small wheelwells, I rolled my own (haha). Im talking about the fenders here.

Rolling the fenders is easy, the hard part is getting the guts to do it. I practiced on my buddies 63 Plymouth station wagon first.

You must know someone with a POS driver that will let you practice!

a buddy of mine mentioned that it's as easy as using an old baseball bat, putting it between the tire and fender, and letting someone roll the car back and forth.

Put the bat in there with no pressure and have a buddy ease off the brake to let the car roll forward. Do this several times to get the hang of controlling the bat.

advice: Get a buddy, not the misses, you will get along much better.
