That looks awesome. But I can see the camber in the rear. Hopefully someone will respond about rolling the fenders, Im interested in that as well.

On mine, I cut about an inch of plastic away in between the 4 plastic push clips retaining the outside two, but removing the center two because the plastic is cut away. I then took a rubber mallet and beat the metal fender up and then towards the outside. I then hit the area with some black primer. It's hard to explain, so here is a pic.

here.... take it from me.

i hacked into mine! literally! think about it. your fenders are plastic! the inners are metal! so you can roll, hammer, hack away at the inner fender all you want and pull them all you want, you will not notice the difference at all on the outside! im currently running 20x8.5 all around with a +25 offset, while trying to be as flush as possible on my tein basics. im all the way down on the lowest setting and my tires do not rub at all. i dont have pics at this moment, but if you really wanna see my rear fenders i can take pics sometime. let me know. goodluck with your car! looks good so far!

I understand rolling the fenders to fit wider/low offset wheels however keep in mind if you ever decided to sell it you will have a much harder time as opposed to one that is stock.

When i modified my fenders I used a cut off wheel to cut away the plastic then I used an air hammer to massage the metal fender flat against itself and applied a quick coat of paint. Just like ADVAN said, you cant see the modification unless you look for it. If I were to do it over, I would still use the cut off wheel on the plastic and then use my fender roller tool made by Eastwood to get the clearance needed. I am currently rolling on staggard 20x9.5 with unknown offsets from DPE on Tein Basics.

Depends on who is buying it, some people would find it as a plus. As mentioned above, you couldn't even tell anything was done unless you look for it.
