Eastwood Fender Roller Tool is rated 4.2623 out of 5 by 61.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from all that could be expected This was as good as could be expected. I found out that rolling fenders is not a trivial task, then I found that these special "pliers" come out from eastwood today. This fender rolling tool is a fairly serious piece of metal, but I think the new "pliers" should be included in the kit...although they look like they need to be bigger. They weren't kidding about heating the paint, don't skip this step like I did. It may take two people even with the tool to do an excellent job of it...but I did get it done and I'm happy I bought the tool...most cheapskates use a baseball bat I've found.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tool! I needed to roll the rear fenders on my 1995 BMW M3 to accommodate wider wheels and track tires. The tool is very well made and looks like it could stand up to daily use. It was easy to assemble and fit my hubs with wheel studs perfectly. The fender roller worked exactly as described. The key is slow and steady, and keep the paint soft with heat. The instructions are pretty basic and fail to mention that the tool can be reconfigured if necessary to better fit the fender. That would have saved a little time but wasn’t too hard to figure out. I highly recommend this tool.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Maybe this one slipped through QC The shipping was fantastic. The tool arrived packaged nicely and the roller looked good at first. That's was the only good part. However while using the tool I discovered the hand wheel part of it was misaligned when they welded it. I managed to roll my fender anyways but I quickly emailed customer service asap. 4 emails and I only got 1 reply back saying he would check if my tool was still under there 1 year warranty and customer service would get back to me. Still have not heard a single thing back!! Very frustrated with customer service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 4+ years strong I have owned my fender roller for about 4 years now. I used it on all my vehicles as well as friends vehicles, and it has not let me down once. My car club ScionApocalypse uses it all the time, it works so good that some members even bought thier own roller to have. Works excellent when you need that extra clearance when air bags are being installed on the car. I recomend this tool to anyone and everyone with a custom car.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product I was very impressed with the tool. I had just painted my car and after lowering it I had a severe rubbing problem in the front. The roller worked great putting a nice edge on the fender without hurting the paint. The rear fenders however had a double layer of sheetmetal where the inner fender attached to the outer sheetmetal. While much more diffiicult I was still able to roll the fenders under to give me clearance

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Tool Very easy to use, and did a wonderful job on my fenders. Now my whole autocross club wants to borrow it:) The only (small) complaint I have is the lever that tightens the roller head is a little short, making it difficult to get it tight enough to not slip. I just used a deep socket (slipped over the lever) with an extension to tighten it a little more firmly. Other than that, worked great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best roller out there! There aren't many available, but this is by far the best. The next best thing to having a body shop. As long as you prep the surface (remove liners, clean surface, adequately heat the paint) you should have no issues cracking paint and doing a professional roll. Actually "pulls" fenders as well if you do it in several steps and keep exerting more force. Expensive, but well worth it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use. Overall great product I had my 66 mustang ready for a new lower stance in only 45 minutes. The front fenders were a breeze for the fender roller and the quarters were a little harder but i got it done. After i was done i dropped her 2.5" in the front and 3" in the back. no rubs with my 17" wheels. now im thinking about 18's in the front and 19 or 20's in the back. thanks eastwood

How far can this tool "push" a fender outward?  I need 1"+ additional clearance per wheel...

Asked by: slow50
We do not recommend using the tool for those sorts of excessive "pushes". It can be done but not safely, when you push a fender out that much, the top metal has the chance of bending in towards the hood, causing alignment of body panels wrong, and overall damage to the fender itself. Along with all of that, there are too many variables to go off of, to say if it would be successful or not.

Will this work on a late 60s car, such as my 68 Dart. The sheet metal is much sturdier than on a new car. On my car the fender lip is two layers of steel. 

Asked by: 68Dart
We do not recommend using this on two layer fender lips, as it usually strips out the center shaft. Some that do two layer fender lips will put slits into the lip to help it fold over easier.

About Eastwood Fender Roller Tool

Our exclusive fender rolling tool bolts directly onto the wheel's hub flange, and the elongated holes in the adapter plate fit all popular 4- and 5-bolt hubs. It's held in place with the included dished washers and your vehicle's lug nuts. Accommodates up to a 120.6 mm (4.75") 4- or 5-lug bolt circles. Forming arm adjustability ranges from a minimum of 14" to a maximum of 22-3/4" hub-center-to-edge-of-roller to handle most automotive and light truck projects. Non-returnable. Limited one-year warranty: if defective, we'll replace the tool.

Delrin® ball-bearing fender-former rolling tool is tough enough to easily form the fender, but without damaging the paint finish. To prevent paint from cracking when forming wheel arches, gently heat the paint before forming; we recommend our Heat Pro Deluxe Variable-Temperature Heat Gun Kit (43522).
