Every state is different. Check your local DMV.

It is kinda like the posted speed being 30mph and you are doing 31mph...probably not gonna be an issue unless you are doing something to draw attention to yourself...and even than it may not be that big a deal but it maybe what gets them to start looking and digging.

They are "required" here in Indiana but I know a lot of people who don't have them.

I believe even if it is legal it only gives the cops a reason to harass you. I see them all the time here in NJ but it is illegal.

Simple Google search

Saf-C 3213.06 Tire Width.

(a) A vehicle shall be rejected if the width of any tire or wheel assembly extends beyond the original manufacturer's specified fender lines, except in the case of passenger vehicles where the fender line has been extended by using metal, rigid fiberglass, or rigid rubber wheel-well extensions.

(b) A vehicle shall be rejected if not equipped with tire flaps if the fenders do not prevent the throw, splash, spray of water, dirt or other matter upward or to the rear.
