At one point or another we have all encountered a truck that is slammed down over a wide set of tires and the outer edge of the tire is sliced up from contacting the lip of the fenderwell. There are many ways to roll the fenderwell lip to prevent those expensive tires from getting cut-up when the suspension sacks out. Hammers, pliers, baseball bats, and even tin snips have all been used in the past. Pliers and hammers will leave uneven results and tear up the paint. A baseball bat will give you smooth results, but it's very sketchy having someone drive your truck forward and back while you try and control the bat rolling between the tire and fender. It's very unsafe and we've seen someone's toe get crushed in the process. Tin snips will give you clearance, but the edge of the fender becomes very weak and can buckle. As you can tell, these tools will get the job done but they won't do it as good as a tool specifically designed for the task. Enter the Fender Roller from Eastwood.

The engineers at Eastwood built this very beefy tool to increase tire and fender clearance, flare fenders, and/or repair wheel arch collision damage. This pro-grade tool is made to bolt to the hub and allow you to progressively roll the lip on the fender, increasing clearance while bending the sharp edge out of the way and preventing it from cutting the sidewall of the tire. We got a little seat time with this tool, and it worked so well we will never go back to using a bat again.
