Moving to VT..Inspection question

I am moving to Vermont, Brattleboro Area, in a few weeks. Just found out. I know there is a vehicle inspection up there (I currently live in Oklahoma where there is no inspection) and I am a little concerned about passing state inspection. I do not know the rules and I was hoping to get some comments.

My concern is that I have 31" BFG M/T tires. They are a little wide. I am not sure if there are rules about tires sticking out too far. I know when I lived in Maine they could not stick out bast the fender wells.

Also, I have a 2" lift, will that cause any issues with inspection?

It's a 2011 and in good shape so mechanically/electrically everything works fine just worried mainly about the tires/lift.

Anything else to watch out for on Jeep inspections?

Thanks everyone!

Most places will pass it no problem. Go to a regular mom and pop repair place

Technically and its technically.. if your tires stick out past the body/fender flares AT ALL its illegal and no inspect-able. That said most mom and pop place will pass it as long as its not half the tire or something silly. mudflaps are required in VT along with Emissions.. Also if its attached to the vehicle it has to work. Example, extra off-road lights need to work regardless of use.
