    Or wooden baseball bats with notches cut every inch or so... Wood slides along the guard easier and the notches keep it at a set diameter...

    Can get pretty wide if you're good too...

    You don't really need the notches if you've got someone to guide the bat/pole; but if you're doing it yourself, you jack the car up to increase the wheelgap, then lower it back down onto the bat and line up the notch to sit on the guard lip with a bit of weight on the bat so you can't turn it by hand. Then drive forwards and back so the bat rolls between the tire and guard. If you don't have the notches, the bat will slide onto the narrow bit.

    You just repeat moving one notch at a time until you're happy with the width.

    Of just use an angle grinder and bolt-on flares if you want real width...

    IMO anyway...

    does this just pres the underside of guard up or does it pump out the guard too.

    wondering if using this would fuck my fresh paint.

    pumps the guard, yes it will fuck your paint unless you heat it up, even then you wont be able to get much flare at all before the paint will crack.

    It goes:

    Buy wheels
    Slam
    Make them fit by molesting body
    Paint if you wish.

    If you dont do it in that order you have to repaint shit/by different wheels/change your suspension, not good.
