Rolling the fenders is a pretty common event here in Chicago. There is some
equipment you can rent over the internet and it (IIRC) attaches to the lugs and
then forces the fender out a little. They include some device to heat up the
fender first, which reduces the stress on the metal and paint. I wouldn't ever
do this myself, but many people around here have done it (the local group
considered purchasing the equipment instead of renting). E-mail me off list,
and I'll hook you up with the last guy to do it - he had great luck.
