|BlackHawkTJ||I have heard the fender must cover tire law before, I know Washington is like that, Texas is not. It seems like 7" should cover your tires though. I am running 33/12.5/15 and 6" Bushwacker pocket flares. My tires stick out less than 3/4". I am thinking you must have spacers on there to be sticking past 7".|

I say the same as many above check for less wheel back spacing!
I have 7 inch flares 12.5-35's and they do not stick out past the flares, close but they dont stick out.

15x8 at most for a 10.5 wide tire.
I personally would go with a 33x12.5 tire on a 15x8 wheel with 3.75" backspacing. More options in that tire size too.

So if I decided to go for a 33/10.50/15 size tires, I should also look for 15x10 rim
with 5 on 4.5 bolt pattern.. right?

just find some stock wheels

RK, looking at your pics it seems your wheels have a huge lip going out (forget if that is positive or negative backspacing) anyway if you were to change JUST THE RIM for one with the proper backspacing you may be able to keep your tires and save some $$ in the process. If you get the same BS on a different wheel even with a narrower tire it may still sit at the same width, therefore keeping the tire in the same place in relation to the flare = Out Too Far.
Good luck with your search

In this pic it's 8" and BS was 3.75.
To measure lay something flat across the back of the rim and measure to the mounting surface......

Hawaii is pretty damn picky, I've heard that before. Those wheels must have a crazy backspacing though. I'm running 35x12.5's with 7" flares and are completely covered. I would look into new wheels.

|jcf||Sounds about right to me,in Utah if you run water down the side of the Jeep & the drips hit the tire it's not roadworthy & won't pass a safety. However the cops are very good roght here in Moab & turn a blind eye most of the time.|

|'97 TJ||are trying to get new tires because you've gotten in trouble for this? because it could just be an uninforced law i know there are plenty of those here in Texas|
|09-05-2009 02:50 PM|
How about some pics of the tires/wheels/fenders? Might be helpful to actually see your situation. As was previously said there are many TJ's out here running 33x12.50's.
California had a one rib rule last time I was checking VC (in the 80's).

Humm..... sounds like a job for super mod..... We have the "island" of Australia but not Hawaii?

Tires to wide for state law
Need help in finding new wheels/tires, new to the jeep wrangler world and abit lost, just bought a preowed 01 sport lifted and has a 33x12.50x15 tire had a 7" flare but still stick out a good 3-4" state law is saying that no tire should ever stick out or it will be a $80 ticket per tire, looking to replace with a little bit narrower than 12.50 and still keep the bulky look any suggestions?
Thanks for the help,
