Reviving this thread.

Is there a community roller up for loan? I would like to borrow it if it is available.

As a corollary, there may be a six-pack in it for anyone with a loaner.

Thanks!

I gave up trying to find a roller and do it myself. Charlie at Intersport did it pretty quickly. I don't recall how much he charged but that likely means it wasn't that much.

copy, I want to give it a try. But definitely with a roller and not a bat or PVC pipe.

just make sure you have a heat gun(not a hair dryer) and IR thermometer also.

IIRC the Eastwood one needs Mods to work on Porsche lug spacing.

We have the amazon/eastwood roller. Does not work for 5x130. Works on 5x120, but not 5x130.

Cut the 5 stud holes open with a hacksaw or better. Make each a U rather than a 0. It will now fit but be sure to install all 5 lug nuts or the mounting plate will bend during use. If you have access to a welder get some 1/4 square steel rod and weld a section outside each of the U openings. Fits Porsche and does not bend.

Reviving this thread again...would prefer to rent or borrow if possible. We need to roll the fenders on the LeMons Mustang, as tire-rub is pretty bad right now.
