legal tire width
 
Need advice with problem. State inspection running out and jeep won't pass due to tires sticking out past stock flares. Jeep is an '06 with 4 inch lift. Tires are 31 10.5. Will rims with bigger backspacing make me legal? WV inspection laws are ridiculous.

Buy a set of stock wheels & tires, (or borrow from another jeeper you know) just long enough to get it inspected.You're gonna have to do this more than once...find a cheap set of stock wheels & tires and keep 'em for just this purpose. Yeah, it will look silly with a 4" lift but only until after the inspection.

Or put wider flares on it

BigDog21 08-31-2012 08:42 PM

i heard that you can only have 3in flares. i dont know for sure but i will in a couple weeks when i get some. my sticker ran out 6/12...lol...

emcclure 09-01-2012 08:54 PM

Wow, that will suck! Sounds like WV. 3 inch flares will get A LOT of jeeps.

Glad I'm west of the river...LOL I'm running 33X12.50's on 15X10's. I'm at least 3 or 4 inches past the stock flares.
Had a buddy get pulled over in Point Pleasant for headlight height in a ford back in the early 80's. Cop actually measured the center of both his headlights & tail lights. Never heard of that law. He was told to get it back across the river and to not bring it back like that.

I did wait till after inspection to put my lt. bar on tho. Still haven't bought the covers that are "required" for them.

I am getting ready to move to Wardensville, WVa from Winchester, Va. area. I am curious about legal issues with my Jeep as well. I am flat fendered in the front and trimmed stock flairs in the back. 7" lift with 36x12.50 super swampers. Evrything passed in Va. except front fenders. They passed with help from a dead president.:whistling: I am guessing modified sticker, but how far can I push that? I am looking to go 38's after the first of the year.

I failed inspection for no cats on the exhaust. Its an 88 Sahara. I have 6 inch flares and they didn't even say a word. That was in martinsburg.

busdrvr320 09-26-2012 09:34 PM

I think the the rule is flares can't be three inches more than original. Thus, the saraha came with a three inch flare and that makes my 6 inch flares legal.

Anyone have the link to the insp law about your ties

HillbillyJeeper 07-30-2013 02:42 PM

Move across river to KY instead, no inspection. Not legal to date your sister though... Sorry.

Mikedirtbike 07-30-2013 02:52 PM
