Is it truly necessary to roll your fenders?

I plan on lowering my ride in the future (not too low, maybe an inch or just a little over) and getting 19s. I've read topics on here about people rolling their fenders.

Is it necessary to do that?

AAAANNNNDDDDD..... I have no idea what that means or how you go about doing that

(of course I can google it but I'd rather ask here, since it's G35 specific)

BTW I have a 2006 G35 Coupe if that's any help.

depends on the offset you get your 19s, if you get coupe 19 and drop it, you wont need to roll you fenders

+1 depends on your offset and how low you go. Rolling your fenders allows you not to rub if you do go too low. There are specific tools you can use or take it to a shop.

If you get rims that make your wheels stick out more and you lower your car to the point where your fenders may come in contact with the tires you may need to roll your fenders. Just youtube rolling fenders for an idea.

I already have the stock 19s, but plan to get wider rims. Also, I'm not gonna drop it too low. 1" isn't too low right?

1" is more than you think it is. As others have said, whether or not you need to roll your fenders will depend on wheel width and offset and also how wide a tire you run.

Thanks for the info.

I should've stated that I plan to get 245/35 front. I currently have 255/40 on the back (stock). But maybe I'll upgrade to 275/35. (with 19s)

Those are the same tire sizes I run.

To give you an idea, I run 19x9.5 +17 in the front and 19x10.5 + 24 in the rear. I'm dropped on Tein 350z H.tech springs, which are less than a 1" drop...probably closer to 3/4". I got my rear fenders rolled before installing the springs, so I couldn't tell you if I would have rubbed, but I can tell you that it would have been close.

I should also mention that your rear camber is another factor to consider...more negative camber -> less chance of rubbing.

You have 255 or 275 in the back?
You also got a camber kit?

When you buy your next set of rims you can go with low 20 back spacing run 275/35X19 on 10.5" rims and not rub lowered on Tein H-Techs....that's where I'm at. And yes, you'll need the camber kit and toe bolts!

I have seen plenty of people on here who have rolled their fenders with bats/etc with no problem. If you are heating it up and doing it carefully/know what you are doing you will be fine. On the other hand, I have seen posts of people going to professional shops and ending up having their paint crack

This should help...


Use this website to see how much your rims/tires will stick out compared to OEM, I can't emphasize enough how useful this website is.
