CDOT Info needed

I did a google search and found nothing, went to the CDOT site and found nothing as well.

I am putting metal cloaks on my Jeep with 6" flares and need to know if that will suffice to get my Jeep inspected? Some states have laws about the fenders covering the tires. I don't plan on running anything larger than 12.5" diameter (currently 33's, going to 35's soon)

Thanks for the advice.

That's not what I'm reading... Also, had some guys say that depending on what county you live in, you can't have any tires bigger than 33" due to the testing stations.

The only smog testing is the 5 county Denver Metro area. And there is NO safety inspection required ANYWHERE in Colorado.

Your concern with fender flairs is a state law...Full coverage is the law. We have no inspection, so you would be subject to the cops doing it. Some cops will write you a ticket some won't. Providing you make an effort to cover them. If you make no effort, have no flairs, you will get tickets randomly all the time.

You can still have tires bigger than 33", you just have to put 33s on to test. 4x4 shops will rent them or borrow some. Only need rear axle.

If only that were true...Larimer and Weld counties (who had been exempt for a dozen years) were forced back in to emission testing a couple of years ago because Denver couldn't pass the EPA standards (and blamed it on smog migrating from Northern CO - proving that metro Denver really sucks?).

In a true Minority Report/thought crime scenario, the Democrat-controlled (at the time) state legislature decided Larimer & Weld would fail the standards at some point in the future - in spite of historical evidence to the contrary - and so removed their exemption...thanks so much!

p.s. all Envirotest regulations state that 34" is max tire height for their testing equipment - some test stations will measure the tire, some only use a conversion chart (usually erroneous) - if in doubt, I recommend using the driveby test stations well in advance of your renewal date.

you will only be able to use the drive by tests after you have registered the vehicle in the state. The emission tests are good for 2 years your plate is only good for 1. On the second year of your emissions test you must pass by 2 stations but before you 2 months to your renewal i.e. renewal date of june your cut off is april. The information can be found at http://aircarecolorado.com/rapidscreen/faq/

I've actually had problems with my 33s at the Envirotest station at 52nd and Marshall in Arvada/Wheat Ridge. I had to run home and slap on my 31s in order to be able to test. That was the fastest tire swap I've ever done

I concur on the safety inspection. However, if you're coming in from another state, I think you have to have a VIN inspection by the state patrol, so fender coverage might be an issue if you have none whatsoever.

Emissions! Another reason to live in southern colorado! We don't have them.

As far as flairs and tires, it is city by city. My tires exceed the flair by 2" and I have not been warned, but a friend in Manitou got a ticket for 1" over.

Colorado does have safety inspections!! Just not in the same way other states do. Any officer can pull you over and do an inspection. Usually it is only in the cars they see as unsafe. During the inspection they write down everything that is wrong with the car. Each item is like a $15 ticket. Ask me how I know!! lol

The vin verification is just that. Usually some clerk at the sheriffs walks out looks at vin/title and signs paper. Haven't had an inspection yet from doing that.

Warning: This poster has infinite knowledge of useless information and redneck tendencies. Use info at your own discretion. :wave:

YET! I predict that eventually every county adjacent to I-25 from New Mexico to Wyoming will implement emissions testing.
