Wide Tires Question

I just put on 325/60R18 tires on 9" rims and I just noticed they stick out past the fender well in the front and back. Will this pass inspection in Pa?

Technically, no...the tire can't extend past the wheel lip. Fender flares are an option, but I THINK (don't quote me) that they can't be wider than three inches.

The REAL answer to whether or not your wheels/tires will pass inspection is this: how well does your inspection mechanic like you?

They are less than 3" but not by much. I have the Dealer inspect it. I have not had good results with local shops in our area so I stay with my dealer. I have been ripped off too many times so it pays me to pay more at a dealer but I do not get the outstanding bills anymore. I hope the let me slide with the tires. Thanks for your help.

Can't you put on the stock ones for inspection, then swap back to the wider afterwards?
