NY fender question

Anybody in NY run Metalcloaks or flatfenders? I'm about to buy some Metalcloaks and just wanted to make sure there wasn't issues with state inspection.

The regulations for tire coverage in NY State apply only to commercial vehicles. I have Metalcloaks and have had no problems.

I confirmed it in person when I moved here. New York State doesn't give an excrement how far your meats stick out. I'm selling my flares to help pay for my flatties.

Same thing as they said... I have the Metalcloak 6" flares and I'm still about 2-3" past and nobody has given me any trouble.
