Porsche 996 Fender Rolling
Had this 996 come into the shop yesterday after rubbing the sidewalls off his new 295 tires. Turns out the champion wheels and champion springs are a little too low for the wide rear tire. The issue is the underside of the fender lip protrudes at about a 90 degree angle, which can cut into a wider tire. Rolling the fender will take this inner lip, and roll it upwards away from the tire.
The fender roller slowly applies increasing pressure as you roll it back and forth in the fenderwell, thus bending the inner lip.
Which ends up looking a little something like this. You can see the difference in the non rolled section and the rolled section. It usually doesn’t take much!
