Tire coverage pics?

Hey, do you guys have any pics that show how much of your tire sticks past your flare?
When I go 35's I dont want to be harassed by the police in MD.
Also, this can be used as a reference for people looking for this in the future.

Can you include
Tire Size:
Wheel Size:
Wheel Backspacing:
Flare Width:

Thanks!

You are on 33x10.5 now? just add 2 inches of tire on both sides for a 35x12.5. pluss the lift they might want mud flaps too.
if you are on 33x12.5 now then it will be tha same.

I've often thought about getting wider flares for my 4.0 offset 31s to prevent the slights little mud/wet gravel sling on the side of my TJ, but I really not sure if I like the look of huge flares. Especially with my small 31s.

Tire width, wheel width, backspacing, and type of flares all come into play. Many variables

33x12.5x15 on 15x8 steel with 3.75 backspace and stock TJ flares.



35x12.5x15 on 15x8 alloy with 4" backspace. Trimmed stock TJ rear flares, MCE Flatties fronts w/3" flares.

Beginning of this weekend.



Tire Size: MTRK 35x12.5x16
Wheel Size: 16
Wheel Backspacing: dont really know off hand, 3.5"??
Flare Width:Stock

End of weekend



Tire Size: MTRK 35x12.5x16
Wheel Size: 16
Wheel Backspacing: dont really know off hand, 3.5"?? + added spidertrax wheel spacers
Flare Width:0

Our law is 1" or less of the tire sticking out past the body/flare. I ran my my same setup (without spacers) for 6 months without any flares, with about 8" of tire showing. Now with the spacers, I have about 9-10" showing. We will see how long this can last.

37x12.50x17
8.5x17 beadlocks
5" backspace
No front flares
Axle is full width HPD60

My POS is a trailer queen & where I typically wheel (JV), coverage is not much of a concern since its driven in OHV areas.
