New tire opinions, questions MAINE

First off I live in Maine, thats important.

Im planning on getting new tires, Goodyear Wrangler RT2's there 36x12.5x16.5

I have a set lined up really cheap, but im not sure about a few things. 250$ with offset rims for a ford.http://i125.photobucket.com/albums/p...T/IMAG0043.jpgthese are wrangler rt2s


and here is a picture of my truckhttp://uploadpic.org/storage/2011/kr...E4gq6wBDyq.jpg

Do the police care about bigger tires? there only 3 inches taller, but how much taller does that seem once its on the truck,

I know i would have to put smaller tires on for a sticker, and thats not a problem.


ill attach a picture of my truck, it has a dana 60 in the front that the PO put in, my truck seems higher then stock and i think its because of the dana 60,

im sure the tires would clear, i almost wish i didnt have so much lift.


anyone know the laws for tires in maine?

thanks!!!!

Yeah I had heard the 28 inch front frame height and 30 inches back

I have heard rumors that they got rid of the tire law as of 2012,

this is a quote from maine.gov inspection pdf


Amends tire*size regulations. This will clarify that vehicles with or without ABS*
brakes can change*the*tire*size within a*reasonable*range, and*require*ABS*equipped*
vehicles with altered*tire*size to appropriately change*the*vehicle’s computer*and*
document*that*change.

I'm already pretty much 28 front 30 rear, and my truck is stock except the Dana 60 and f350 suspension as far as i know, i see no lift.

2 inches bigger wheels would put me up to a solid 32", so that seems odd, maybe you just cant have big tires around here....just seems odd because i see a lot of 35's and really tall trucks.

i know where i come from they have a head and tail light max and minimum height, as well as a maximum tire size, so people run as large as a 44, and will install headlights and tail lights in or below their bumpers, not many do it but they get it done, awkward to be so high imho, who would want to daily drive something that outragious

true, but i think there is a big difference between 44's and 36's, im not sure how high my truck will be, 2.5 inches higher actually i guess i do know.


i just need new tires because i cant go anywere in 2wd in the winter.

and these are so cheap.
