I'd make a balls of it no doubt!
The issue is I'm going to have to fit 16mm spacers to clear my porsche brakes, which is going to mean that there will be tyre tread outside of my arches.
I was told by a local garage that it's not possible to roll r32 arches.....
Maybe they're just scared of it like I am...

I rolled my arches my self with a socket handle lol its defo possible its easy as well , 16mm spacers on standard wheels ?

R32 arches are exactly the same as any other golf Mk4 arch

The inside lip that comes out basically needs to be bent up and flat with the arch the front bracket that holds the arch liner on needs to be cut off and bent flat I've done the same on my carbon wings , you could try camber adjustable top mounts I have them on mine running a 9.5j wheel Et20 on the front of mine

You can roll the front arches but not the rears. I want to get my front arches rolled but cannot find anyone down my way to do it either.

If you're lowered the rear will tend to camber in anyway. I don't think it should be an issue...

On the front I've 8.75j et 35 I think..
Not something I'd be comfortable doing.
Seems the place I asked think the same too...

You running 225's?

Do you need the 16mm spacers? How much is it 'out' by?
215's at the front I think, I'm not 100% sure how much tread is showing as I've not got the brakes fitted yet, hoping to get somewhere lined up so I can get them right

trial fitted them mate 16mm is the smallest I can go, going to get them pulled once they're fitted, so I get it right, once I find someone to do it!!
