I looked into it for a while. My driver's fender was rubbing forever. The places around here wanted way too much to do it, so I ended up taking some vice grips to it. You have to be very careful, it takes a lot of work if your tool is too big, and it's not recommended by anybody. If I had the funds when I needed them I definitely wouldn't have done it myself, and it's not a great job either.

A speed shop down the street from me and a local body shop i asked could both roll them. :thumbsup:

Hope this helps.

My tires were doing the same thing. :werd:

Use the smallest pair of vice grips you can find. I couldn't squeeze hard enough with pliers.

It's not easy, and it's not something I would want to do again for sure. Post up in here if you need any advice or run into any problems. :thumbsup:

You offsets are too big in the wrong direction.... you are going to rub on the suspension , not the fender lip. If you rub.. you are still stock ride height.

Keep the receipt for those wheels close by. :wink:

stock height yes....

i already spoke to the guy and told him if they rub, he is keeping them.
so im not really worried about that.

the thing is Savini themselves gave those offsets based on the car.

spacers would be a quick fix as long as it doesn't hit the fenders...
