either the rims fit, or they don't. What are they doing with a blow torch?
it'll take that long because all 4 fenders would have to be rolled

Thats the term I was looking for!

Rolling the fenders. Inside and out. Whereas with normal width tires, only outside fenders have to be rolled.

"We actually heat it up and bend them" he said ... "for clearance" ...

I assume that totally screws any chance of the car remaining a Lease

The better know what they are doing. The front fenders are made of a plastic composite.

Fine. Tell me where I can get identical looking rims with lips ... and dont say Radenergie R20's cuz those look too different in the spoke area 4 me....

Ive struggled with this for a whole 4 days

I think my only issue, now seeing these from more angles, is the color of the rims. Im not sure I like plain old painted rims, versus chrome ..... or polished or whatever its called.
