Who does good Fender Rolling around Boston?

Anyone know of a good shop in the Boston area? I want to try to get a 265 or 275 on the rear and would like a nice roll and pull on my rear fenders.

I know of a place in Wayland that does fender rolls. I don't see why you would need a fender roll to fit 275s unless you have the wrong offset. I've been running 275s star specs for 2 years with no issues. I have Apex Arc8s 18x9.5 ET62s and is slammed on coilovers and do not rub the fender.

I have stretched Continental DW 245's in rear on VMR V710's and I want to go bigger, the stretched tire makes my 18's look ghetto. I went with VMR's recommended offset I want to say it's either 45 or 50 in the rear.

You will not be able to get a 275 out back with a +45 or +50 offset. VMR's looks sweet, but for getting wide tires on our weird offset 1 series, they aren't the best wheel to go with. Right now with my Apex Arc8s out back (18x9.5" +62) I have a 275 on that and I rub the inside of my fender liner and subframe at full compression.

nice stance...I definitely would have gone with a different rim had I known the vmr offset would screw me on wider tires.

I have a 265 on the rear of my car. Slight fender pull/roll with VMR offsets. No rub after.

Dosturbos,

If you're still looking, try calling Sublime Restorations Rt. 1 Rowley, MA (978)-948-8510. They do amazing work, it's the only shop I would hand my car off to...they also take care of the Turner Motorsport cars!
