I was wondering how much a fender rolling job actually costs. Someone told me you can actually rent the Haweka Fender Lip Roller from TireRack for less then $50. They just Charge your card a Deposit and when you return it, the delete the charge. All you pay is basically shipping.

I thought that a shop usually charges about $100-150 for a job well done (heated and everything.) Also are there any drawbacks to getting them rolled. I was told it leaves a greater chance of the fender areas rusting. Would I be able to get fenders rolled enough to get 235/40/17 on my w201 with the car lowered with H&R and the lowest pads? Or would that still be pushing it. And how much are the fenders normally rolled by.

Thanxs in advance.

I want to roll the fenders on my E430 to fit the sizes tire/wheels on E55. It would be 245/40-18 & 275/35-18. I am concerned about the paint cracking if not heated.

You should definitely heat the fender lip with a heat gun. It will be easier to work with and avoid cracking the paint.

The E430 shouldn't need modification to fit the E55 wheels and tires. Just sold an E430 with E55 wheels and tires and no modification needed. I still have an extra set of E55 wheels and tires if you are interested...less than 2000 miles...MINT condition...$2700 all four wheels and tires

I agree you should get them heated if you plan on rolling the fenders, but I haven't gotten any responses on pricing for a good job.

Also, the reason why most people roll the fenders is becuase they put the widest wheels and tires possible and then run into problems when they lower the car. I agree, the E55 setup works on the other Es, but I would get the fenders rolled just to be on the safe side if you ever plan on getting the car lowered.

BocaBenzs,

I disagree that the E430 does not need fender rolling. The E55 gets rolled fenders at the AMG factory in order to properly fit. I put Carlsson 1/6 (17X7.5) with a 30MM offset and 235/45-17 tires and I get fender rub (driver front) when I run hard and drive over a dip or bump. The 30MM offset pushed the wheel out 11MM over stock. To put the E55's 18X8 with 245/40-18 up front and 18X9 with 275/35-18 in the rear you MUST have the fenders rolled. Mercedes-Benz "The Collection" brochure (MC-99-161-75) states "BODY MODIFICATION REQUIRED" to fit 235/45-18 (front) & 265/35-18 (rear).

Your customer will be back when he discovers the rubbing.

The E430 was traded in with the E55 wheels on it...the former owner had no problems and neither does the present owner...I will check for modifications next time I see the vehicle, but pretty sure nothing has been done...

Kelvin is right here. Mercedes' brochure stated clearly that 18" on E-Class will require rolling fenders. When you have the wheels on the car, and let it stay there, there won't be any problems. But once you lowered the car, or cornering at high speed, the tire might rub with the fender well....

Can rubbing cut a tire or cause you to wreck (say, in a fast corner)??
