I just bought replica bmw contour rims 17" for my E36 and in the rear, if I have people in the back or I take a hard corner, they rub on the very tip of the fenders. I have heard of rolling them, but am skeptical about damaging the paint. No one in the area does this kind of work. any suggestions? I don't really want to put much more $$ into it if I can help it. Can I roll them safely myself? Can I get a different hub which is a bit shorter? Should I get shocks that are taller? used

i had no problems with paint chipping from my fenders rolled. i've heard that BMW's hav good paint in the sense that it is unlikely to chip. i think there might be sum DIY's on the forum about rolling but it cost me $80 (US) per fender.

thanks. I still am not sure if anyone around the area will do the job. when I ask people about doing it, most seem to back away from the question like they might mess something up. Is it possible that my shocks are gone? i do have 100K on the car/

yeh im runnin 225/45/17 and my wheels didnt rub at all until i lowered it. thats weird its rubbing now when you havent touched the suspension...are you thinking about lowering your car because either way youd probably have to roll your fenders

I have 18'' rims with 235's. My car is also lowered 1.5/1.0. You should be okay without rolling your fenders.

I don't know why mine are rubbing. They aren't that big and it shouldn't be doing this. I do have a decent amount of weight in the back. spare tire/big speaker box, but that shouldn't matter. When I get passengers in the back it is absolutely horrible. Had the car packed with girls the other night and it was embarassing. I think I will try some spacers in the coil springs first if that might help. What do you guys think?

last year I had 19" * 8.5" wheels with 245 35's. I had to get the fenders rolled, and the 2 front fenders ended up having cracked paint right at the top middle of the wheel well. Not supposed to happen but it's the risk you take. Anyway, it's a good idea to get them rolled if you are gonna roll on some larger wider wheels.

yeh they are rolled. rolling fenders does not do anything to change the exterior look it "rolls" in the inner lip inside the wheel well
