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.

From what I have read thier are no tire coverage laws in NY

Consider Obama the lesson many in this country need to learn, the rest of us just have to pay for it!

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.

The top and doors on this vehicle are designed only for protection against the elements. Do not rely on the top and doors to contain occupants within the vehicle or to protect against injury during an accident. Wear seatbelts at all times.

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.
