Its not so much people vs police its people vs police enforcing dumb laws... If they get there rocks off ticketing for doors off why dont they enforce this garbage: Any motorist driving along a country road at night must stop every mile and send up a rocket signal, wait 10 minutes for the road to be cleared of livestock, and continue. You may not catch a fish by any body part except the mouth. A special cleaning ordinance bans housewives from hiding dirt and dust under a rug in a dwelling. You may not sing in the bathtub. Though you do not need a fishing license to fish on your own land, but a hunting license is required to hunt on your own land. Fireworks stores may not sell fireworks to Pennsylvania residents. A person is not eligible to become Governor if he/she has participated in a duel. We pa jeepers need to write our legislators.. But we dont need tickets for convoluted poorly written laws being interpreted on the spot. Maybe this guy can help ...not a political endorsement... But he does drive a jeep http://www.wolfforpa.com
Sorry to stir up an old topic been reading about tire laws

As mentioned earlier in the thread, I moved from PA in part to get away from the politicized law enforcement. I'm not in favor I allowing law enforcement officials to be roadside judges. By that I mean passing judgment on what to detain someone for, and what to cite someone for (it happens everywhere in the US, but seemed to be worse in PA). This car passes at 65 in a 55 and doesn't get stopped. The next at 73 gets stopped, but is nice so doesn't get cited. The next at 63 gets stopped but is quiet, saying only as few words as necessary for fear of being beaten (happens!) and is ticketed. Fighting it is costly, stressful, and aggravating. But the ticket could also be flat WRONG (see: no doors in PA) and the wrongly accused still has to deal with it. It should be MUCH harder to become an officer. That said, there are also plenty (most?) or good ones.
Flares? Define flares. Can they say the factory flares aren't an integral part of the body? If not, could I run without them? Just because they're a different material, are they not part of the vehicle? What about Rubis? Do I have to change out the stock flares before I leave the dealer (oh, crap, now my tires stick out too much...)?
So happy to be in FL! While it's not nearly perfect, these things are much less of an issue. Maybe it's just having less bored lawyers.

|BLK00TJ||How is PA when it comes to out of state vehicles? I was under the impression that they can only enforce that stuff for PA vehicles. I'm fine looking like a dork with my bent up front plate if I can roll without doors on for my trip up to RC.|

Saying that .. There are many dumb laws out there. Call your legislator. That's their jurisdiction.

I read the 100+ posts about the tire size thing. I am dismayed that I see so many of what I thought to be the best of the jeepers to have such a negative view of the Police in general. Some don't hide it and show absolute contempt.
I to was a TIN MAN for 38 yrs. I treated you as I wanted to be, and took sure quick actionwhen necessary.
I am proud of the profession I chose.
We called these "tickets" correction cards. I don't remember following up on one.
|08-14-2012 09:02 PM|
X2 about the gun laws. The vehicle ones are a bit goofy at times.
Dragonii, probably. Tires are out but where I live you never get trouble by cops unless you venture in town and then it's still real rare. Haha.
|08-14-2012 08:20 PM|
Bet you'd get a ticket in it in PA.
|08-14-2012 08:18 PM|
Haven't heard the 3" rule, but I have heard that they can't be non-factory. It's another bad part for PA; I've never heard of it being enforced either, and I've actually had police officers tell me that I should get wider flares to cover the tires and be legal.
PA is great for things like gun laws, but it really needs to lighten up on the nitpicking of the vehicle code.

|GoldenSahara00||According to pa state law your flares can't be wider then 3 inches so a cop can bust you for that. Yeah. Wack.|
|08-14-2012 04:53 PM|
As for the fenders, maybe try these.
They are shaped exactly like the original stock flares but they are wider.
They cover my 33x12.5x15's on 4" offset rims perfectly.

Please don't get me wrong, police officers are often some of society's finest members. However, I won't begin to put them, or anyone else for that matter, on a pedestal and pretend they are incapable of making a bad decision. Officer of the law, doctor, soldier, judge, etc... I don't really care what you're job title is; at the end of the day, everyone is human and capable of making a mistake.
I think people are getting a little carried away.
Back on topic:
A friend of mine who is a mechanic in SC PA had this to say back in November:

|techflork||There's a jeep in my neighborhood that has 35's and stock flares. Those tires must stick out like a good 3 or 4 inches haha. Maybe excessive but man I wouldn't be able to tell on your jeep, and this guy I could tell from a mile away! He's been running it for a long time and hasn't changed it. I'm guessing no cops care, and why should they?? There should be more important things to stop :/|

|Gama26b||I'm a bit offended were not all assholes, but I mean you wouldn't hesitate to put ur life on the line for a stranger correct? Just saying. I give tickets to those who break the law. Someone's attitude always but themselfs a cite. We don't cite to make city money we cite to make u realize ur mistake.|

Asshole politicians, making asshole laws, so asshole cops can generate revenue in the name of public safety.
I'll leave it at that since I haven't read the COC for this forum. Don't want to get the boot

|GoldenSahara00||I hope you fight it. I'll write the state gov in Harrisburg if you want and get every keeper I know to if you want. If we got parks like Rausch and rock run and other places involved we could end up with a few thousand jeepers. Or we could take it nationally. Honestly how hard is it to type up a petition and send it around for electronic signatures. You can set them up for free online I believe. Just a thought. I will argue with cops over these types of issues because I know the law.|
|08-13-2012 09:52 PM|
My tires stick out a good inch and never had an officer say anything. I did get stopped for havin a broken passenger side mirror. Funny thing here in MI... with doors off only drivers side and rear view is required. But because passenger side was mounted and clearly broken when his headlights hit it I got stopped. Was just a fix-it-ticket. I put steel doors on and got it signed off. Not gonna say this deputy was "fishing" for drunks... but he has a reputation for snagging drunks. Anyways.. Arguing with an officer at 3am on the side of the road is a bad idea.

|Dozer13JK||Ridiculous reason to pull somebody over the way I see it. Especially after seeing pictures of how much tire was actually protruding from his Jeep. I understand that some states may have laws and violations regarding such a thing but come on. It's not like the OP is running a 13.50 + width fat ass tire with flat fenders/no fenders. I think PA needs to check itself with that law. Your tires aren't hurting anything.|

|Leeroy Jeepkins||It is also stated on the roof(that was removed because you modified it) that the doors and roof will not provide protection.|
