When running TT's and lowered you really need to roll the fender lips, If you are not lowered then you don't need to do anything to get them to roll they will not rub.

It really depends on what tires you have. With my GS-D3's I had to do some, but it wasn't really a big deal.

You can rent one here. http://www.ls1tech.com/forums/showth...=fender+roller

You are rolling the lip that is on the rear outer fenders up so it doesn't contact the tire. It's only a problem if you are lowered.

Here's some pictures. http://www.rollyourfender.com/instruction.html

I had to roll my fenders. I have a set of 315 BFG DRs and i have sportlines. I can usually only ride with a max of 1 other person in the car. My tires will still sometimes rub the fender on one of the sides. and actually took a big chunk out of one of my DRs the other day. I have an adj PHB as well, but it just seems like one sticks out SLIGHTLY more then the other. and i havent been able to fix it.

Its something you can do with the correct equipment; rotary tool to cut & grind metal off the bump stops, thats all i had to do but my cars not lowered

Is the only way to fit 17"x11" TTII's on the back with 315 BFG's is to cut the bumpstops?

I have a 2002 WS6 Trans Am, and I'm trying to fit the TTII's I just bought on the rear. I had the car jacked from the frame so the suspention would hang freely. I put the new tires on and they barely make contact with the mounting flange, then i looked around back and the bumptop was poking into the tire about 1/8" above the rim. Now trying to decide if I should go with spacers or cut the bumpstop or a bit of both.

Absolutely no reason what sao ever to TOUCH the BS. . . . the only problem would be is you cannot install the wheels with the rear axle hanging, it must be supported by a jack.

thats correct.. you have to load the rear axle so its tucked up and they will bolt up with no problem.

17x11x4
Zero fender banging.
Suspension mods in sig.
Rear~I grinded the inner fender lip off with an angle grinder. Start from front and work your way to the back. It will take around 50-100 passes.
Front~I grinded the lip that sticks off the spindle that goes in between the upper and lower arms.
