Rolling fenders?

Don't know as much about cars as I'd like so I figured I'd come on here and start asking my questions! A friend told me he has the equipment to roll my fenders if I want to and I have absolutely no idea what that is...so could some kind soul explain it to this girl? Thanks!

People do that to gain a bit more tire/fender clearance.

It can also give your fender wells a slightly custom look.

When lowering your car and using wider wheels than stock there is the possibility of your wheels rubbing up against the inside of the fender, rolling them is when the inside of the fender that sticks out is heated and bent inward so to give your wheels more clearance.

There is a tool that does it, it's an actual roller, but it can also be done with a hammer and heat gun.

This thread explains the process fairly well.

You have a 2012 correct?

There are no inner fenders to roll.

This is correct ^^

Some people do use it to slightly push out the fenders though to give even more clearance. It is better to just get fender flares instead of doing that, but i have seen it done successfully a few times.
