i'm pretty sure that the one mirror you need must be a driver side mirror. rear view mirror can be obstructed to easily and passenger side is not required.

i work in the courthouse right across the hall from the district court office where tickets are paid. i hear them talk all the time.

Probably depends on the state. In VA there is no restriction that I know of. Heck my stock tires stick out about 1.5"
