Just curious to see if anyone has done this. I went to a little car meet last night and one of the guys there had an E60 with a 13.5'' or 14'' rear tire on a 20'' wheel. He said he had to roll his fenders, cut out the wheel wells and make adjustments to them. Anyone else ever done this?

No. Would personally never consider it. It would completely destroy any resale value the car had. Any pics?

No pics of his, I honestly couldn't tell until I saw how wide his rear tire was and asked how he managed to fit it under there. I'll grab some pics next Friday at the car meet.

Well rolling fenders is common practice for the "Stanced" crowd and they make a nice tool to do it. It's just flattening the inner lip of a fender.

Now stuffing a 20x 12"+ wheel in a e60 by removing fender lining is beyond fender rolling. And a wide body kit should be in order. Get pics and find out if he DIY it or had a shop do it. Maybe he just dosen't know how they did it. Or maybe he dose..

My guess is old school baseball bat.

He sort of DIY it, his buddy has the tool and a good bit of experience, he said they knocked it out together with him helping when he was needed. He told me he'd do it for $100. I'm thinking about it, car isn't under warranty and by the time I'm ready to get a new car, it'll be worth it just to keep it because I won't get very much for it. I forgot to mention this, he cut his fender wells and what not because he lowered the car a lot.

Not nearly as bad as it sounds, Rijc- I actually had my e39 done after springs and struts, and it's imperceptible from the outside; it simply puts a gentle curve on the inside wheel well. There is an actual tool for it- It looks like a rubber roller.
