I'm surprised you were even worried about your paint cracking since it looks like it's been rattle canned...

Okay I need a lesson here.

What do you guys mean by "pull"? Are you actually pulling the fenders outwards away from the car? Up til now I thought the only things you could do were to roll the lip inside the fenders, or to cut the fenders right out and attach flares - this is new to me.

man up dude, grab a dremel, hold a steady hand and get to choppin... then seal it with silicone so it wont rust, done deal plus it gives you a tiny bit more clearance than rolling.

its what I did, and came out perfect...








i dont have any rolling shots of my car, but my stance is identical to this guy's

I don't know much about pulling, hell.... I knew nothing about cutting fenders until one day I just ended up doing it, turns out I did it by the books from what all the G and Z guys told me, guess I got lucky.

as far as pulling your fender, personally I would rather go with more negative camber or with a more stretched tire instead of trying to pull the fender.
But if you're planning on repainting the fender anyway, then by all means pull away.

hmm i'm definitely going to look into pulling. how hard is it to do it evenly? is this something you necessarily have to take in to a bodyshop for?

i can't mess around with camber and i definitely can't minimize my contact patch for what i use my car for, so this is really my only option when rolling won't be enough
