Default [How To?] Roll Fenders Before Paint...?

So some friends and I are getting ready to be paint this bitch from its black primeredness to an actual color and since I'm waiting on MS from a friend and time to fab everything...I'm painting my Rotas and painting the car.

Would rolling the fenders do anything for running slightly wider tires? My C8s are 16x7 and I'd like to run either 215s or 225s depending on fitment, choices, etc. I may ever just stay with the 205 Azenis that I have for them.

Just a random thought before we got around to painting, would it help and would I need to...and how do you guys go about rolling them?

I just got azenis 205's, first time I've ever ran them. I think they rock the nuts so far. They are pretty wide for 205's

+1 on link


I've always heard about using a baseball bat and was curious how the hell do you do that, just put the bat between tire/fender, slowly roll the car back and forth?
