Fender trimming

So I've noticed my tires are slightly rubbing on my outer fender well. I don't have $400+ to have my fenders rolled. Has anyone trimmed them? If so how did it work out?

Damn, a professional fender rolling tool is only like $250ish dollars! ...and I'm not talking about those cheap fender crimping pliers.

Hell, man. Find someone that will let you rent/borrow their tool and DIY. Just be really careful or you'll crack your paint.

The only problem with doing it myself is I don't want the paint to crack. Ill find a guy who can do it cheaper.

yeah man 400 is a total rip off... 100 per fender? thats insane. I mean what will it take to roll 4 fenders an hour? Or am i totally off here guys? I may have to go this route too one day but id probably just buy the tool. Btw OP whats your tires and suspension setup? Just curious. Hope ya get it worked out. Just dont CUT or TRIM them

Nice! Do it and then you can roll your friends and it'll pay for the roller over time. Lol
