Fender Rolling question

Has anyone on here have their fenders rolled or flared? If so, how much more does the fender stick out?

There is a thread here about a few "wide bodies". I'll try to find it for you....

Kinda but not the "widebody". Just want to roll the fenders out a bit so my wheels don't stick out.

Rolling your fenders won't move them out. It simply lessens the possibility of your fender lip cutting your tire by bending the inner edge of the fender upward. If you want to cover the tire you will have to flair the fender.

I've rolled fenders in a few car myself before using a baseball bat technique (seriously). The key is to work slow and smooth and not be too aggressive. It won't move your fenders dramatically, but mostly will tuck the inner edge of the fender to keep from rubbing on your tires. If you go too aggressive with rolling the fenders, it can turn out looking like crap.

I have also done this on a few cars but the Camaro fenders are already flat. The op states the his wheel stick out 12mm no fender rolling will help that. You might need to pull your fenders or run some negative camber. A body shop should be able to pull that much without charging an arm and a leg.

Ya I was looking into flaring the fender as well as rolling it because I know rolling it won't affect how far the actual fender sticks out. How is flaring the fender done?

I want to flare it enough where I can drop it an inch and not have to worry about tires hitting.

I used one on my 4th gen when I put the 315's on the back. Worked great, and did not crack the paint.

I need to do this also, I have lowered on pedders xa's and have 275 fronts and hit dips in the road it cuts the tire.. had to raplace one already and the tire only had 1000 miles on it.. Im not really that low I didnt think and I haft to role around with my coilovers on 27-28 on the front.. makes for a ruff ride

Same issue for me. I got 275s up front and 315s in the back and with a 1-1.25 drop i cut my tires when I hit dips in the road. Anyone rolled their fenders? I've searched the forum and haven't found much.

Rolled mine using the wooden handle on my rubber mallet. I still rub some on the fender at about 2 and 10 oclock. Going to try rolling those areas tonight

I'd be interested to see some before/after pics of the front fenders.

I've rolled & flared fenders on other cars with great success, but I wouldn't mind seeing it done on a Camaro before I tackled mine. I wouldn't mind flaring them a bit to hold my 305's.
