    People run 315s by rolling fender lips. It's all about the offsets.

    that's a point I was trying to make earlier but instead of rolling the fender lips, grind them off. then you don't have to worry about the paint cracking

    here's what the lips look like half grinded down. I have not taken pic's of them fully grinded off but you can imagine.

    Just make sure you use primer and everything so your car doesn't rust from having open metal.

    I would grind as a last resort, and only if you know you are keeping the car for a long, long time. While rolling fenders will also impact the resale value of the car a little, grinding the fender lips off will hurt it much more, IMO. Just something to keep in mind.

    alot of times when the fender is rolled the paint around the edges will crack. not always at first but later on you'll start to see little cracks spread. also you can grind them off for really cheap at a shop or even yourself at home for free.

    resale value?.... chances are if your doing this to your fender you're putting aftermarket wheels, tires, and suspension on the car which if done right will not hurt the resale value (unless were talking about a garage queen).

    it goes without saying that your going to prime and paint after you grind but that's nothing more than going to the hardware store to get some spray paint and painters tape. not a big deal.

    grinding is way better than rolling.
