Default Shaving or Fender Roll?

So I have a 2011 Lexus IS-F and just ordered some 19x9 +35 and 19x10 +35 wheels. I here that I will rub in the back so I am wondering what I should do. I'm worried if i shave it will rust and if I roll the paint will crack. what should I do? Anyone who has done it one here can you please give me some advice? Thanks

Need to use a heat gun and really warm up the paint while rollering. You may also need to silicone the lip of the fender as there is a type of caulking material from the factory that may come out. Just use black Automotive silicone to fill it back in. The key is to take your time doing a very little bit at a time.

Are you sure you will rub in the back? I would wait and see before attempting to do any modifications. Good luck, and please post pics of your new wheels!

I tried rolling them but they didn't bend right (There is thicker lip of metal that got in the way), so I ended it up grinding them. A grinder and a few hours of work and I was done

if you're planing to do the grinding yourself lmk, I can give you a few tips.

really? was this for the fronts or rears? I plan on rolling the rear as that is what everyone is doing for the rears to fit the wheels that I am putting on.

not sure why you would rub with 19X10 in the back, most people have 10.5 in the back and dont have to roll the rears..........i have 20x11 295/25/20 and had them rolled and havent had a problem once........

See below...

I didn't waste my time with heating & rolling..

I shaved / grinded off the excess metal and used a few layers of touch paint to seal it up..

Looks & feels like OEM

I had some nice tire rubbing/cutting going on, with stock suspension on my IS-F

With this Rear set up:

19x9.5 w/ 35mm offset on a 265-30 Yokohama Advan Sport tire

Solved via DIY .. (Not recommend for the novice)

You need to be very patient and apply roller pressure very little at a time as too much will damage the fender. I spent about 45 minutes per fender which was a little more than I needed but wanted to be absolutely sure I did not dimple the fender which could happen if you get impatient. You also need to adjust the top roller angle during the process. Start out less of an angle then gradually work it more vertically as you invision the edge first bending upward then angled towards the fender itself. Did I say be patient? Roller a little at a time.

I have an Eastwood roller tool.
