Hey Guys!

Currently, my car is on King Ultra Lows. Anyway, every now and again, with the steering even slightly turned, if it goes over a bump, the tyres give the inside of the guards a hard time. Is there any way I can sorta do a self rolling? Would a rubber mallet and some gentle tapping do the trick or should I just get them rolled?

Any hints and tips would be great guys!

Cheers!

just get them rolled, theres too big a chance of kinking the guards or cracking paint if you DIY

Yea, that was the biggest fear! Might have to try and hunt someone that can roll guards down!

i used a jack handle ane rolled it around the outside of the wheel slowly folding the lip up un the guard, worked a treat. may even be worth pulling the guards out a little if you have wide wheels

Super Lows! Nah!! I Love the look of a Low LOW car.

It has 18" x 8" rims wrapped in 235/40 rubber. The rims are CSA's so they have a real shallow offset.

All I was gonna do was wrap one of my Body Dollys in rubber and then just use a nylon hammer to push the inside of the guard in.

Have you checked the inside of your tyre as well?
The inside of mine was almost completely worn down to the wire, when I was having the same problem with mine being too low

the guards wouldnt cause that, having a bad wheel alignment will
