In addition to Todd, you can also go to Luxury Motorworks for fender shaving.

rolling usually costs around 35-50 per fender, why dont you do it yourself. its fairly easy. just use a heat gun or torch and heat up the fender, then use a bfh..big hammer and bang it along the inside, u can then use a wood block to smooth it out. just to save you money. or you can borrow a fender rolling tool, much easier and smoother. if not, you can hit up the wheel supply in walnut, they do a pretty good job

id recommend the wheel supply also. They did mine but since my fenders were already slightly dented, it didnt turn out so well. If thats the case, have them cut them. They will do both.

That's where I went as well. Tell albert , sander, or victor "bryan with the carlsson gs" sent you and they'll hook it up.

Pete the guy who did my fender work did an excellent job pulling, flaring, and rolling my rear fenders to accomodate my +15 offset. I can't think of anyone I would trust besides him,

Getting coilovers?

My rims are super flush with my fenders, so when I am carrying 2 in the car with full tank, 3 in the car with at least half a tank (or even 1/4), 4 in the car with 1/4 tank, I will rub on any little bump. Plus if I roll now, when I get coilovers later, I can drop it to the ground with no problem.
