Fender Roller for Rent in Detroit Area

I recently had wider tires and wheels installed on my G8 GT, and unfortunately have a fairly serious rubbing issue on the rear fender edge. It is cutting into the tire on hard bumps and turns. Does anyone have, or who know who might have a Fender Roller tool for rent in the Detroit, Michigan area? I have called around to a number of shops and no one does fender rolling. Even the ones someone has told me did their car. Thanks in advance for any help.

Some shops have quit doing them, they say "you are either the HERO or the Zero"
too many things to go wrong.

Thanks for the advice. I was lucky enough to find a local shop owner who let me borrow the shop's roller. He had used it on his own G8. It did the trick. The tires only rub now with a full load of passengers and some enthusiastic cornering.
