All done. No paint cracking or ripples. Managed almost 26mm which should just be enough. Need to find a tyre with a sloping sidewall

falken 452 have a sloping side wall as they also come under size by about 10 mm so if you want 285 buy 295

Unconfused now. Glad you got a good result.

Did you have them rolled flat and any cracks or creases?

Double skinned over the top of the arch where it was bent back as far as he could.
Whilst the arch liners were out, I took the opportunity to Gravi-Guard all the metal (which was in excellent shape regardless)

Just read about that arch roller in a copy of popular hot rodding, looks like it does the job. Can't wait to see pics, would it work on a Ro, or still not viable?

Using a roller has always been possible - I lokked at it 3 years ago, so it's nothing new.

Your problem with the Monaro, is that you've got all of this under the skin to move when rolling.

Paranoid?

No Idea James - Will have to wait for pics tomorrow. If you look at the arches side or from the front, you can't tell that anything's up. From behind you'd have to know the car as there is a marked flare which isn't (of course) carried through into the bumper, but like I said, you'd need to know the curves of the car.

At the top of the arch, say from 10 O'clock to 2 O'clock, the lip (which was double skinned) has been folded back almost onto itself, the wheel arch liner cut to fit and re-sealed.

In theory, I've got the space to put 295's on with no problem. However, the reason for doing it is that I'm going to be running a 10 x 20 with a lower offset...
