Emissions Test with 35's???

So just took the jeep in to get emissions done. They said they couldn't accept anything with more then 34'' tires. Mine are 315's but measure out to be like 34 1/4''. They tried putting it on the machine and he said it was to close and they would not test it. So what do people do? I dont have a smaller set of wheels and tires i can put on just for the test. And my Temps expire today...Help me figure this out.

Call around to the 4x4 shops....I've heard of some of them having a loaner pair for the back. You leave your back pair with them till you get back. I don't remember the shop, but I remember hearing about it, and wondering the same thing when I moved up to 35's.

Looking at other forums, it looks like High Country in Denver will rent a set to you.

Rent? Really? That sucks but i guess its better then buying some!! Thank you guys!!

This is still going to suck to have to swap out tires for a couple of hours to just get emissions.

Will it be ok to just change out the rears and roll with 33's on the rear and 35's on the front just to get the emissions?

Some guys have been turned away with 33's even though the website says 34's.....I'd go with the smaller ones and be safe.

Thats crazy....I cant believe it....33's are not that big of a tire. But i guess they are just being safe so they dont have to buy people a bunch of tires if they damage it. And its not like they can go around and make ALL the machines capable of fitting a bigger tire.

This is why you see pre-owned Jeeps (at used car lots) with smaller tires - normally 31s when the Jeep is set up for 33s.

next time, when it gets close to the time for emissions..look up the areas where you can do the drive through testing...the little white vans parked on the side of the road...takes away much of the headache

I have a set of rears you can borrow. That is what I do for mine. They are TJ bolt pattern if that's what you are looking for.

I have a 08 JKUR so i think they are different? Tj's are 5x4.5 aren't they? But let me know and thank you very much for the offer. It would be A lot easier doing it that way then having to take the wife's off her Jeep and leave it on jack stands!!

This is the easiest thing to do.

When do your registration expire? You should have time to do the drive by thing still. They are usually on the clover leaf style on ramps, just hit it twice back to.

It says on their website you have to go through them twice at least two months before your registration expires.

Ok, first things first, calm down. If your resgistration says tomorrow, then the stickers on your plates say 06/13. IN that case you can legally drive until Jul 30 without braking the law. In Colorado you have a 30 day grace period, which starts after the last day of the month in which your registration expires

Not with Temp Tags....Temp tags have no grace period

Not sure that applies to Temp Tags...as is the case here. Call DMV or try the World Wide Web, it's not just for porn anymore!

If he is running on temp tags go to the DMV, and for $15-$45 you can get up to a 60 day extension.

I think it's only a 10 day extension. But maybe thats just when you get one from private party and tag it yourself. Not sure

The guys at discount tires found a set in the back. They tried to put them on and found they had a different bolt pattern. He insisted on unmounting my 35s on my wheels and remounting the smaller tires. After I passed the emissions I went back and he remounted my tires on my wheels. I couldn't believe he did all of this for me. Customer service was incredible. The jeep acted funny, driving to the emissions station, and would not accelerate past 25 mph and dash lights were flashing. It didn't like the big fronts and small backs. It was a big waste of an afternoon, but had to be done.

If companies want to see what excellent customer service is, see Discount Tire. Never had a bad experience there. They have always gone the extra mile for me so this doesn't surprise me.

I dealt with this in January, when I moved from out-of-state. I'd heard rumors about the 35s so went to the emissions shop in Longmont to ask around. He told me the cut-off was 34". My 35" Cooper Discoverer STT measured at 34".

So I just made it. Although I had issues since I had no tailpipe and they wouldn't test me. So I had to have a $60 tailpipe made and then was OK. But the tires passed.

Personally, I think its bs. I'm in Weld County (Frederick) and 'parts' of Weld are exempt from emissions, but not my location. Further, I have a street legal vehicle, so its not my problem that they didn't build their machines to accommodate it. I think they should reimburse people who have to jump through extra hoops (i.e., renting tires) to get tested, due to their restrictive equipment.

Just another example of government sponsored private companies that create and enforce laws involving citizens. They can even go so far as to deny you a test simply because the tires/wheels are not OEM, which happened to a friend of mine and her old BMW. She had upgraded 18" wheels and some low profile tires (not super low profile) and they turned her down. Her tires/wheels were the exact same size as my EvoX and they had no problem with mine. Just stated that it wasnt equipped that way from the factory and they didnt have to test it.

I had the same problem. I went to High Country Performance 4x4 and they let me borrow a set for the rear end. All they charged me for was the labor to swap the tires. There's an emissions place not far from their shop. It took longer to go through the emissions test than it did for them to swap the tire back and forth.

Wow!! I didnt know that getting your emissions done could be such a PITA for people. Thank You all for all off your advice...since i dont want to spend anymore money then i need to...i think i will go down to the garage and swap the wifes tires back to her stock ones so she can still get to work then put 2 of hers on the rear of the Wrangler.

That is cool of Discount and High Country to step up for us people with Bigger tires!!!
