Another option is go to a used tire place and ask if you can borrow a trashed set that will still pass, I'm sure if you ask nice they will. Good thing in md is once its done its done till you get another jeep or car...
I know guys from MD who have had issues. There is a big jeep club on FB and this comes up from time to time. But like you said there are jeep friendly places etc. it's the same here in pa. Mine are illegal but I can get anything to pass almost... Haha

1st- is to borrow someones stock tires
2nd- buy 33X12.50 tires and buy 6" flares
3rd- I could just buy 33X10.50 tires and be done.

Not sure what I wanna do though.

Trailsnail On stock rims without spacers, the trailing edge of the front tires will probably rub your radius arms during sharp turns

bhsanchez72 It has stock wheels and I plan on keeping it on the stock wheels for now.

33x10.5 will still stick out past the flares. I have 33x10.5 and they stick out 2"-3" past the OEM flares. Does the Jeep your looking at have stock or aftermarket wheels?

Yes, as everyone said 12.5 will stick out past stock flares. What state are you trying to pass inspection in? I know in NJ where I live it's an emmissions only inspection so lift, tires and stuff like that don't apply to the inspection anymore. I'd go online and check the laws in your state for inspection requirements for passenger vehicles.

PStov98TJ For a1 2.50 tire you should have ~4-3.5" bs. They'll stick out 4-5" past stock, non rubi flares.

(Note, you appear to have YJ. Do you have a TJ or YJ?)

No idea where you are located (no info in your profile) Inspection and wheel coverage laws are different state to state so there is no way to determine what you need.

It is not only tire width that determins how much further out they will be. You have to know the rim backspacing.

i_be_heepin This is a random pic i had when I was on 33s. depends on your rim backspacing and im not exactly sure of mine so take that into account.

Melissas6570 Glad we dont have that in AL. I would keep my old tires and wheels, or borrow a set of smaller tires from a friend.
03-21-2013 09:20 PM
Dragnslayr06 You will need larger flares to pass an inspection. 6inch flares should cover them enough.
03-21-2013 09:20 PM
TJspeed If your wheels have the correct back spacing for 33x12.5 then yes they will. Not sure how much. But my 33x10.5 sick out about 2" to 3" past oem non Rubicon flares. But new mexico doesn't have inspections
03-21-2013 09:18 PM
Ridge Runner 99 Mine are about 5" past the stock flares. They pass in Virginia.
