How to Roll a Fender - Lexus ISF (Making room for wider tires)
**JUST SAY NO to the "baseball bat" trick!** This is the easiest, most accurate, proper way to get the job done. This is a 2011 Lexus ISF. My new, wider Pirelli tires came in a few weeks ago but i knew before i put them on, i would have to roll the fenders. In this video, you see exactly how to do it. I bought my roller off of Amazon.com but it can also be found at http://www.eastwood.com. The new tires are 235/30/20 (front, 9" wheels) and 285/25/20 (rear, 10" wheels). The wheels themselves are custom, 1-off 3 piece wheels made by AZA ( http://www.azaforged.com ). As it stands, even with the fenders rolled, the 285's in the rear barely clear and i could not use a spacer. I tried, it doesnt work, so dont bother asking.

www.FuturevisionHID.com. I have had HID's before but it was time for some
projectors. It took a little bit of work but it wasnt too bad. It

to install the projector. The housings i am using are NOT STOCK. They are
"diamond clear" so they allow the projector to shine through without being
After aiming these things, and taking a short run around my building, they
seem very well. The silicon should be dry by now so tonight i will get to

How to stretch a tire... and how you don't.
First time we had to use fire to make a tire stretch out.
Stretching 195/45R15s on 9Jx15 BBS RMs.
Didn't work at first, but we got there! (Still not as good as in other
videos I have seen, but hey..whatever! It's fun!)
As more and more people cry about handling and whatever when it comes to
These wheels will be going on a stanced out 1986 Scirocco 16V weekend
It's meant to look good in the first place, handling just comes second.
Stretching tires that much will make the handling in fast corners
worse...normal driving you won't notice any difference though.
On my MKIII GTI, I run 195/40s on 9" wide rims for daily use and meetings,
while I run 215/35s on 9" wide rims for track use (see my onboard videos on

little, giving you a more direct steering, while still allowing fast
In combination with harder rubber bushings, more stiff suspension setup and
unbiall top mounts, etc.etc. this results in an almost GoKart like, very
direct handling...sure not the fastest setup, but fast and fun enough for

MR2 WBK : Credit Card Clearance? WAT CLEARANCE?????!!!!!!
While people brag about the credit card fitment...
PS: yes, I do drive the car with that fitment.
So no, it's not just for taking picture/video; I drive it like that.
I can drive with that kind of fitments since the WBK is fiberglass.
On bumps, the WBK flexes and shaved the tires, along with the letterings.
If you have stock metal fender, most likely, it will cut the tires through
and blow the tire.
Next video will show how the letterings are shaved off after running some

How you shouldn't roll a miata fender.
Needed to slightly roll the fenders on my NA Miata, Not paying $200+ for a
roller. This way worked fine for me, no more rubbing & looks fine. Did all
4 corners, turned out decent enough.
Cost: $5 for 4loko and monster. Everything else I had at my house.
I don't advise doing it this way. Its not very safe, might shank yourself.
