I would put tires on and do a test fit.
You might be ok with out spacers. Once the tires are on and you have the car on the ground, you will see how much room there is between the tire and the fender. The spacer will move the tire closer to the fender.

The 89 S4 does not have rolled fenders so Id do as Brad suggests but remember not all rubber is the same and differ in width from manufacturer.

The rims and tyres on Brads car used to on my car and the rears were very tight with Michein PS2s. when I installed Michelin pilot sports same marked size the actual clearance was more........275x40x17

Sorry, I didn't see your question. That would really be up to Gary, as he would have to handle it, but I would suspect if it wasn't overly difficult he would be willing. Did you email Gary directly?

Only the moderators or owners of those topics can post, as we are keeping those topics "clean" so viewers can find their answers quickly without distractions. That is why the thread directs those interested to email Gary.

I will delete your question that is in the moderation queue, please email Gary directly. Once that subject is discussed perhaps an update to that topic (on international shipping) would make sense. thank you.

I was looking at the Fender roller and because my rear fender is very straight/level, I think it may be difficult to roll my fender with the tool.

I would not think that it is an issue to ship other then the cost.
It may cost close to $100 to ship it both ways.

I considered the broom handle before we got the tool but I don't like the idea of a permeant change to my car.

I am not sure why yours would be any different than Gary's....
I did my race car, before I flared the fenders, with a softball bat. If you have great paint, I would think it would be distressing to wonder if the paint was going to crack or not (it did not in my case).
