    Fender Rollin... Help?

    Okay, so I am looking to go Moar LOW.. I am looking to get some miros or something. I'm looking @ 18" 8.5 on the front 18" 10 on the back.. (Can you say stance?)

    Anyways! My problem I am having.. The 1 single rusting spot on my car is the rear passenger side fender .. I want to get them rolled but I know it won't work if there is rust.. Is there anything I can do to get them rolled??

    The Rust spot isn't that bad.. But it is their and u can deffinitly see/feel it.. I will try and through a picture on here this weekend when I go to start my car in storage.

    Thanks!

    Wheel size means nothing. just because you buy wide wheels doesnt mean you're gonna have "stance". you need to pay attention to offsets more-so than simply the width of the wheel.

    There is a difference between rolling and pulling. Rolling your fenders is when the sheet metal of your fender is just bent 90 degrees to be horizontal and you "roll" that lip up against the inside of your fender making the lip bent 180 degrees to make it vertical which frees up room in your fender. Pulling is what I think you are thinking of which is when the distance from the fender lip to your wheel well is increased. Pulling your fenders is very difficult and a body shop would have to be involved and isnt for the faint of wallet.

    You need to stretch your tires to pull off that look. Even then, you will get some or a lot of rubbing if you are really low.

    Those wheels are pretty expensive for used Miros no? Brand new Miros go for $800-1000 and cheapo tires are probably just a bit over a $100 a piece.

    Ya I sold my miros for 800$ and they were perfect. I would give that guy 1000 bc they are 18's.

    IF anyone ever gets a ticket for a bov on their car they absolutely useless and deserve the ticket. If a traffic cop ever tells you open your hood when he pulls you over for an invalid plate sticker you tell him to get a real job and do something useful for the economy. Honestly reading shit like that enrages me.

    As far as Im concerned cops need a warrant to make you open your hood. A invalid sticker is NO WHERE near to do anything with your engine. Inform yourself on the law or get fucked. Either way Alex @ Touch of Euro does fender rolling, 905 822 3806.

    a BOV isn't illegal, but venting to atmosphere is

    you can get BOVs that still recirculate
