Just moved to Boston, registered, now need inspection.

Hey all, i moved down from Maine for a new job and am living in somerville. I just got the jeep registered today. So i have a week to get it inspected. Maine's inspection laws are nuts compared to MA i think. But no matter what, I need to get some stock rubbers on my jeep. i was going to shop on c's list for some to throw on but does anyone around have some that would pass and that i could borrow? and my other question, is there a shop in the area that's more friendly with 4x4s? Thanks guys and gals!

Pictures? Are the tires covered? You could be fine as-is.

They're 3" tnt custom flares. so the tread sticks out about 1.75"... the back isn't too bad at all. I just dont want to go in somewhere and pay $30 to be failed. So if getting tires is the way to go then i'll go that route.

in MA, unless you are at a friendly shop, tread outside the fenders will fail.

And there aren't a lot of friendly shops because of stings.

If you can find someone that has street tires on rims with the same bolt circle, that would be the thing to borrow.
