FWIW rolling really just implies bending or folding the inner "lip" upwards...this will only get you 1/2-3/4" of clearance at best.

Most guys also simultaneously pull the fenders themselves outwards. You need room for sidewall deflection and suspension motion so just being able to mount the wheel/tire on the car while it sits static on the ground is not sufficient.

My car isn't at home yet but I will take pics when I can. A wooden bat and section of 2x4" were used on mine.
