would you need to roll the gaurds on an au to fit 18" X 8.5" wheels if it is fitted with superlows.
if so how much does it cost, and what is done

rolling the guards is were the inner lip of the gaurd is rolled up and made to sit flush with the inside of the guard,
when u can have a look at the lip b4 you get it rolled adn u can see what gets rolled

I have an EF with superlows and 18X8's it never rubs, had the same wheels on an ED and they rubbed, so not sure about an AU.

I have an AU with 18X8.5 and Lows, on the way up from Melbourne hit what I would have said was a small pot hole and it has caught the left hand guard and pulled it out so I would strongly suggest you get it done.

the TE-50 is designed for 18's though, so ford would have mucked up if they'd released a car which scraped the guards from the factory...

lol nit-picking there frank aren't we?!?! :P regardless, tickford (ther ford performance arm) would have looked pretty stupid releasing a car which did not have the camber or whatever to stop it from cutting into those expensive tyres that it comes fitted with! :D

guard rolling prices vary from place to place, but i believe most work from around $55 per guard, but be aware many will not give warrenty against split paint. Panel shops will charge the same, but charge extra if paint cracks.

Hope this helps.
