Good question. I'm not too sure either. People roll their fenders in order to fit wider rims (usually the rear). It should affect your exterior appearence because the fenders itself are widened much mroe like an e46 M3. You really need an expert answer as I too have just gone from what i have put together.

i just got my rear fenders rolled yesterday. at first i thought the whole arch would be widened but the lip inside the rear wheel wells is the only thing that is changed. if u put ur hand underneath u can feel a lip that sticks out. by rolling the fenders it is basically just folded in to accomadate more room for tires. hope that helps. i will be posting pics soon so keep an eye out

wrong about the exterior changes. velocity is right, you're just rolling the inner fender against itself. another technique to making room on the fenders is by "pulling" them. this is where you take a hydraulic jack and push the fenders outward along the edge. all have been done to my fenders several times as i keep needing more room

you can actually roll your fenders using a baseball bat or metal pipe. there is an actual tool that i have used to do my car.
