Cut fenders

Hey i new here, anyways i just got a set of 18 inch wheels and they clear alright but when i hit a bump they rub on that lip on the back finder. Should i just cut that lip off or should i try to roll it?

Re: Cut finders

if you decide to roll it then u need to take it somewhere and have it professionally done or you will really screw the fender up, also it will most likely stretch and crack your paint. are you lowered? what size tires are you running?

Re: Cut fenders

rolling the fenders yourself, if your careful, shouldnt cause problems. my buddy picked up a fender roller for $150 and has rolled a number of peoples fenders. i rolled my own and rolled my brothers 4th gen lude and it turned out pretty good. some ways to prevent your paint from chipping or cracking is to heat up the paint along the edge of the fender with a heat gun just prior to roller them. also cutting a few stress cuts in the part you are rolling will cause for less stretching of the metal.

Re: Cut fenders

how much are you lowered though? and what size tires are you running? and what camber are you running? all that plays into account as well.

my brother is dropped about 2 inches with JIC Magic coilovers. he is running -.75 camber on all 4 corners with ingalls camber kits. he has staggered 16x7 and 16x8 3 piece carving starks with a +35 offset. we have rolled the fenders and quarter panels. he is running really beefy tires though: Dunlop Direzzas 225-50-16 and he has a slight rubbing problem still.

if he had 215-45-16 or 205-45-16 tires the rubbing problem would be solved.

he could also get the spc ball joint camber kits and run a -1.5 to a -2 camber and that would also do the trick.

there are a lot of aspects that contribute to it.

Re: Cut fenders

just have a body shop cut em.
the metal lip on the rear quarter panel is very thick, thicker than most cars on a 5th gen, if thats what you have. since the lip is so thick its better to cut it out because if you roll it, it will most likely never be perfect due to the fact its so thick, causing your quarter to ripple and may bend later down the road. ive seen it happen a few times.
