Putting a set of 18x8.5 et35 wheels on a 2010 Speed 3. They`ll fit well and give me a meatier look. Not going for anything radical. I **HATE** the stretched tire look. Hate it. Tires I`m going to run are 245/35/18, and if my math (and hours of reading) is correct, it *should* fit up just about square, possibly rubbing on bigger bumps, more so after it`s lowered. I have zero qualms about picking up a rolling tool and taking some time to do it myself.

My question is this: How much roll is called for with this combo (front and/or rear), and have any of you done your own fenders yet? The two questions are directly related, and probably better served in reverse order (did you do your own and how much was necessary).

Thanks for any info!

I roll all the fenders for the cars in house and for local guys. We are set up with all the equipment needed. Generally speaking I go pretty aggressive because I like to do it once and only once and then not have to worry about it later should I get different wheel and tire setups.

I imagine I`ll probably roll them out as far as appropriate, not trying to do bare minimum, specifically. Do the fronts typically have to be rolled to accommodate an 18X8.5 et35 wheel?
