Fender flares are actual extensions of the fenders, its material that you adding to fender to make it wider. The fender rolling tool rolls the inner edge of the stock fender to give you clearance for wider tyres or running lower offset wheels.

These are fender flares.

Brackenhurst Alberton, send me a pm for the full address.

2 pics of what it looks like. Will take pics in the use of it when I do the next set of fenders.

RE: Fender rolling tool
Apologies if this seems like I'm hijacking your thread. I've got a set of 20's. No spacers required and wheels fit perfectly on lci e90. Rear tyres are 275/30/20. They rub a bit only on the fender lining / mudguard and not the fender itself. How would one fix this problem other than running a 25 profile?

Shot bru. But worth mentioning that rolling fenders would be pointless if it's the fender linings that are affected and not the actual fender.

Fender linings are made of plastic and won't cut through your tyre sidewall. The metal fender has a sharp edge on the inside that does cut through sidewalls, this tool flattens that sharp edge and gives you a few more millimeters of space for wider tyres. This is common practice for e30, e36, e46 and many more owners who need more room. Its a strong possibility that e90 is different where fender linings get in the way instead of the fender like everything else. In your case you have too little wheel offset.

Your problem is that the tyre is oversized, that size tyre is what I would run on my E60, you could remove the fender lining ( does the rear have a plastic lining?)

The tyre store advised that I go with a 30 profile. I should have followed my better judgment and insisted on 25 because I was going 2" up from 18" with a 35 profile. I should rather advertise the tyres so that I can replace with 25 profile or go with 265/30/20?

RE: Fender rolling tool
My stock rims on my 335 were narrow and wides. 225/35/19 front and 255/30/19 rear. The 35 and 30 are aspect ratio/% of the width of the tyre (eg 225 x 35% = 78.75cm and 255 X30% = 76.5cm). So if you have real wide tyres in the rear, the tyre profile (sidewall) will be bigger. EG 225/35/19 the sidewall would be smaller than 275/35/19 and therefore the total diameter (outside diameter, not rim diatmeter) of the tyre too.

Also would bigger tyres/rims mean less torque eg 20" over 18"? Or would it be so small its irrelevant?

How did the rolling go at Powerflow?

Post a few pix for us to view please if possible

Ok so went to PowerFlow Fordsburg on Saturday, spoke to Ramon very helpful and pleasant dude. They don't roll fenders there, they shave them instead as its less prone to cracking. iirc I think they charge around R500...

Lifted the car to realize its not the fender that's touching, but my rear bumper :-(

All I did was changed from Toyo Proxes T1 Sport 255/35/19 to Falken FK453 255/35/19

RE: Fender rolling tool
Noob Question: Can the e46 M3 Rear fenders be rolled or must they be shaved ? I noticed that the E46 M3 rear fenders inner lip is quite thick.

What is the width of the rims, both back and front? My initial guestimate would be to use 225/30/20 (8j - 8.5j) and 245/30/20 (9j-9.5j) on ther rear which is 3% bigger than stock, but still 2.7% smaller than what you have.

Did you notice that using the 275/30 tyre raised your car by about 19mm at the rear

Thanks guys. The fenders were expertly rolled by Auto Lounge. I would highly recommend them for your fender rolling needsClapper
