We replaced the 225 vr50 16 Hankook tires with the same size Yokohama
tires but had a rub on the rear when there were people in the back or
the 66 hit a big bump. The Yokohama tires sidewalls bulge outward more even though the tread
width is the same size.
The only solution was to roll the fender
lips in the rear before serious problems happened to the tires. I tried
the old school wood bat method but the 2 layers of spot welded metal
cut into the wood and did not move the metal at all.
I checked out the Eastwood fender roller and it seemed perfect:
Video of how to use it:
The $300 price tag for a 1 time use tool seemed a bit too much to pay. I
found a rental on eBay for $35 (plus shipping) for 5 days.
It was a simple job that took about 2 hours total. I did have some paint
cracks on the inside lip that folded over but it can not be seen unless
you look up inside the wheel well. I plan on brushing on SPI epoxy
primer on the bent lip and coating the area where it is folded to the
body with seam sealer to keep water out.
Attached are pictures of before and after along with Chris using the roller.
