Bought superlows. Not in the car yet.But i know i will have to roll the guards.
so...
Is there a method on doing this without creasing paint ect?

Should i remove that plastic moulding that runs along the lip inside the guard and pinch the metal together with my fingers????

you should roll your guards, your guards will chop out your tyres on corners either the first day or 6 months later with the wheels on it

YALLA HABIBI!

Dont even try this, if you want the achmed look to your car or ripped through your guards go for it.

Pay someone to do it and it'll look like its never been done. Make sure u use a heatgun when u do it too!
