    Alright, so I take my truck to the CHP station to get the mudflaps signed off. He says the mudflaps work great, but he wouldnt pass me because the tires were way outside the wells and I needed flares too. I guess both mudflaps and flares are under the same code in CA or something. So the only thing I could think of was throwing some tires from fromt my buddy's stock 2500 on there. This is what came out. Believe it or not he signed me off this time.

    New jersey would pass you.. until you get pulled over on the street with the bigger tires..... damn paperwork says your tires on it.. $140 fine EVERY time you get pulled over. I know someone that got 5 tickets on the way home.. cop called a cop ... etc...


    i know a guy that just used that black guarden liner stuff... screwed it right to his wheel well openings.. truck passed....

    Those little tires are so cute! /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Reminds me when I was trying to get one of mine legal with 9 inches of lift and 33's. Amazing the backflips we do just to drive our beasts.

    Hehe we don't even need mudflaps on "SUV"s in Arizona. Pick up trucks yes, Blazers, Subs, whatever no mud flaps no matter how tall and outrageous.

    So what did the origional ticket say cuz no mud flaps and no flares I think are 2 different V.C.s .Did he give ya a another ticket for no flares while you were at the CHP?

    I got a ticket for no flaps.When I went to get it signed the cop said "He didnt bust ya for no flares?" and then signed off my ticket.

    Next time go find a city cop to sign ya off /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
