    Been there done that. They are really hard to roll on an sn95 . . especially without damaging the paint.

    I took a cutoff wheel to mine and then smoothed the edge with a grinder. It's a little extreme, but it works a hell of a lot better than rolling them.

    The cutoff wheel is easy. Just get one of those little 90 degree cutoff wheels. They're cheap and useful to have around.

    Believe me . . its a lot easier than rolling them. I was running Nitto 305/45/18 DRs and not rubbing . . . ^-^

    There is a tool for rolling fenders that you use with a heat gun, it doesnt damage paint

    you can always charge people locally 50 bucks to roll out their fenders til you get 300 dollas and technically own the tool for free O0
