If your state has a tread 'law' then most likely you cannot have ANY tread sticking out past the fender flare, period. There are so many different types of tire widths, fender widths, flare widths...that you aren't going to find any comparison specs on them...just impossible to do that. Too many combinations!
BS (backspacing) has nothing to do with fenders, flares, etc.-it's relative to tire rubbing on the frame and suspension with wider tread. Too much one way and you are going to rub and destroy the sidewall and tread, suspension parts...go too far the other way and you are sticking out beyond your body and if you 'bottom out' that body edge is going to slice up your tread! Yes, it is confusing...
but you want to pick a tire you like, then go from there.
