I'm in the market for some new 18" wheels, but can't deside if I should roll the fenders on my whip. I see in previous SS posts/picts that this was'nt done. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/confused.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>2005 Flint Grey V50 T5 AWD w/Geartronic<br>-2006 Flint Grey Body Kit w/Roof Spolier<br>-EST Front Upper Sway Bar<br>-Evolve Rear Lower Sway Bar<br>-Evolve FMIC<br>-Evolve Turbo Intake Pipe w/Blue Silicon Hoes<br>-Heico Dual Sport Exhaust<br>-Heico Alum.

Re: (mofolicious)

I rolled mine, it wasn't that big a deal... although I'm running my 19x8.5's back there, so you're probably safe with 18's. It used to rub like crazy! Now it only rubs when I have 5 people in there...

Re: (S40Racer)

S40Racer: How did you roll yours? While I haven't had any major issues with rubbing, I have rubbed once heading up the mountain with my car fully loaded.I figure if I can roll my fenders that will for sure clear up any issues I may have. I was using my 19x8.5 wheels with 43 offset at the time, but I have another set of wheels I am about to use that are only 19x8, but they have a 38 offset.

Re: (chendawg)

Hey Chendawg, how did you roll yours? I'm thinking about doing mine just to be safe but I am hesitant to do it myself and I can't seem to find any place that advertises having a roller I can rent or that will do it for me...Any help appreciated! And if you did pay to get it done, what'd it cost?

Re: (volvonewbie69)

If you are referring to someone's post above about whether you type all of your stuff in for each post or not, they are probably just asking because there is a way you can have it automatically included in your signature. Just click on "My Profile" in the upper right corner of the website and there is a place you can type your sig. Much easier than copying and pasting, if that is what you are doing. Not trying to be rude in any way, just helpful info in case you didn't know.
