OK, I did the legal thing and asked the question on the MSP (Michigan State Police) website.

Got an email reply this morning. Here it is:

Thank you for posting your question to the MSP website. It has been forwarded to my office for a response.



question: When running wide aftermarket tires on a passenger vehicle, are there any laws governing how far a tire can protrude from a wheel well?


Answer: No.



Sgt. Steven Spink

OK, now I have done a follow up question to him: How do I handle the situation when pulled over? Waiting for his reply.

Had a followup email with the officer. Although there are no laws governing tire exposure, he cautioned me on another point:

"With the way that the careless and reckless driving statutes read it is possible to write an operator who knowingly operates or has reason to believe the operation is hazardous, reckless, careless, or negligent manner by throwing debris into traffic."

This means that if your tires are sticking out and you throw shit, the officer can write you a ticket. So, be safe!

The officer has been great with his communication with me. Thumbs up to him!

I would think removeable mudflaps for street use could "protect" one in that situation?

Regardless thank you for the information whiterhino. I am sure CC will now swallow on your next visit.
