flares
 
What is the widest flares made? I have my state inspection coming up and my tires stick out past my flares which will automatically fail me here in Pennsylvania. I currently have 6 inch flares on it

Hmmm, I didnt know you got failed for that in pa, because I see everyone around here in trucks and 1 or 2 jeeps who stick out. if all else fails throw on some tinys you have sittin around, get it inspected, then put your boys back on.

Anyways, I think you can get extended flares, and I believe the sahara flares that I have on my TJ are a few inches wider than normal tjs. at least from pics I have seen they are. I assume your looking for aftermarket though. You can always fab your own as well.

We have the same law in Utah. The best thing that I have found is to ask around the different people you know with 4 wheel drives and what shops they take them to for inspection. Some shops are more lenient than others when it comes to inspections.

The largest I've seen is 7".

Ok I'm gonna have to start looking around. Thanks

I just went through the whole "cover the wheels" problem here in PA. My tires were two inches wider than my stock flares and they failed me. I put a set of rubicon flares on to add an inch and I passed. If you are running 6" flares maybe the 7 inch's will do the trick even if you still have a little bit of the tire sticking out

Sahara and Rubicon flares are 1" wider than X, SE, Sport and the others.

Yea I have a rubicon with six inch flares and they stick out so I might have to make custom flat fenders for it

Yea the whole flare thing is keeping me from going to a 33x12.5x15. I like my painted Sahara flares. 33x10.5x15 are hard to come by.

I just put the 7" RR OEM style flares on today, got finished in the dark, no pics. They cover my 33x12.5 and rims with 4" ( I believe) backspacing. Actually, I wish they were about an inch thinner. :(
