oversize tire laws

What is the maximum amount tires can extend outside the body? Can they stick out past the fender flares? If so, how far? I'm in Minnesota.

Thanks

Re: oversize tire laws

In maine thats a big no sticking out past the flairs. Of course the laws in maine basically state that you can't do anything to the vehicle besides drive it!!

Re: oversize tire laws

I think it's pretty much common in all states for it to be illegal to have your tires sticking out past your fenders. Mine stick out about 1-2 inches, and I haven't had a problem yet. It just depends on how anal they are about it.

New Jersey--Land of Communism!

Our tires cant legally stick outside the fenders....which is why we keep the factory tires for inspections...then drive home and put the big mud tires on after we pass....hehehe...

Re: oversize tire laws

Vary's by state. Alaska is pretty much if you have a lift it needs mudflaps. My beach running tires (dunlop dune rovers) stick out about 2"s and I've driven by countless cops with mud up the sides and windows and they haven't bothered me. I'm curious to see how much my 33x9.50s stick out when I get them.....however, I'm probably going to put some cheapie flares on it before summer just in case.

Re: oversize tire laws

Here in Nova Scotia a cop gave me a warning last fall to have my tires covered or off in 1 week. It was a good time to yank my motor anyway. I went with the 6" Bestop flares but they still stick out a bit.

Re: oversize tire laws

From what I was told in Maine is that up to one full tread can be sticking out beyond the flares but no more than that.

Re: oversize tire laws

One full tread? Boy on a Bogger that could be a fair bit!
