Hey Chris;

Long tome no talk to.

I used a wooden baseball bat with the car jacked up. Worked great. Gotta cut some grooves every 4-5" or so, then roll them up using the tire for leverage. Dab some primer where the cuts were made and you're good to go.

I had a high-perf wheel/tire place do mine with the tool (they remove the wheel, mount the tool, then roll with brute force). No problems. Make sure they heat the surface first so there's no paint damage. Currently running 19x9.5 rims with 265/30 tires. No rubbing.

I rolled mine with a tool from bigwheels.net. It attaches to the wheel lugs and you just move it back and forth as you turn a knob. worked pretty well, but I wouldn't recommend doing it on a really cold day (shouldn't be a problem this time of year), I did mine in feb. and it cracked the paint a little under the fender. I touched it up and put some sealer on it and haven't had any problems.
