Tire coverage: what do you get away with?

I was wondering how little tire coverage everyone is getting away with. I'm going to be running wider axles and the tires are going to be sticking out significantly past the flares. I don't drive above the speed limit or draw attention to myself so I hope that helps.

Here in Yakima I have 2 1/2" with stock flares on my TJ, my old CJ I had 3 1/2"-4". My brother drove his 48 Willy's quite often on full size 60's with 37's. He easily had 8" sticking past the tub and was pulled over once in 4 years ( for loud exhaust).

You will be less likely to get pulled over if you have mud flaps.
