Fender flares to cover 35x12.50 tires???

Alright I'm in the military stationed in La and was just told I'm moving to New Jersey in 2 weeks. I have Pennsylvania tags and will be driving in both states and from what I hear the cops are bad about tires sticking out past the flares.... So my question is what can I pick up for the time being that will cover 35x12.50s???

Also if anyone knows for sure how the cops are in these states please send me a PM


Thanks in advance!!!

Rugged Ridge makes a set of 7" that look like stock flares... They are a direct bolt on replacement that do not require any drilling.

A lot will depend on your wheel backspacing too. What you can do is take a ruler and a piece of string out to your Jeep. Hold the ruler against the side of the fenders and find hang the string down to find out how wide the flares need to be. I'm not sure if PA counts the whole tire or just the tread. Of course, you can always try to find out if there's a fine involved. If there's just an inspection ticket with no fine, take care of them once and if you get pulled over. I live in MD near the border and drive up into PA all the time with no problems. I run the stock flares with a 12.5" tire and 3-5/16" backspaced wheels -*;so mine stick out pretty far.

Are u being stationed at JBMDL? If so the township cops around lakehurst are &;@@(@,$;&:@. And that's being nice about it. If you have pa plates you go by pa rules. But the cops will pull you over for the tires sometimes if you can prove you are legal in pa you won't get a ticket. If you are coming to McGuire/dix you'll be ok. Oh if you don't mind the drive base housing is new on six and McGuire. And I hope you like sand.
How do I know
I got stationed at McGuire 19 years ago so PM me if you need anything when you get here.

genright 6s work well for keeping the tires covered. PA is bad on the tire coverage, NJ not the worst out there

NJ friend with Genrights never has an issue when its on the road

That's the best coverage I've seen for tubes and looks good too. Another product to add to my list.

Just ran into the same issue here in Oregon, gotta find a way to cover all my tread front and rear. I'm thinking about getting the 6 inch version for the front from MCE but I'm not sure what to do about the back.

I'm sure it may be different in areas of NJ but as far as I know for S NJ, I have not heard of anyone having issues. My neighbor's stick out 4" past the flares. My 6" Bushwhacker pockes barely cover (not to the law) my 12.5 33's

From all the posts I have seen from PA residents, PA is FAR worse.

GenRight's are cool but not necessarily the "for the time being" fix. If you want the 7" OEM ones for now let me know.

Namaste,

Allen
