Just curious...I've seen different wheels on each side of the car before, but never different wheels front and back. Although I guess LE's don't come in the size he needed to achieve the look he wanted.

I've seen 335's on stock V6 mustangs. It's all just in preparation for what's to come.

Make sure you use a heatgun (i used the midpriced Wagner heat gun from OSH) and use LOTS of patience when heating it up, heat it til it is paint-flexible, if it bubbles, just back off, the paint will settle flat again and readhere--don't freak out, it's normal and the paint is fine when it recools. I took about 1 hour per corner of the car. Expect to take that long if you plan to do a clean job; get a friend to help and hold the gun and heat as you slowly move back and forth inch at a time; it helps a lot that way. Yes, you WILL be sweating--it SHOULD get that hot for you to work on it
I've had good experiences with the eastwood piece.

oh don't get me wrong, it's a very good roller, but many users in various import communities have also spoken about the eastwood's inability to conveniently roll SLAMMED suspension cars; key word is "slammed", where the suspension is VERY compressed, not just the average "lowered car" <--those won't have any issues with the Eastwood roller

about the fender rolling questions....I read up on it here. http://www.rollyourfender.com/ then I rolled mine and a friend's rear fenders. It is very easy. Just timely and it is a lot easier with two people. I rolled while he used the heat gun.
