Need to comply with Hawaii regulations now!

Just like anyone else i have wheels and tires that stick out past the fender wells a little bit. Here in Hawaii the thread cannot go past the top part of the fender! I am running 18x9 5inch BS wheels with o35x12.5r18 toyo A/T's and i need to somehow get into the regulations here. Luckily, i will receive back my stock wheels and tires when my stuff gets here. I just don't want to run stock sized 33.25 tires on a lifted F250. My truck is lifted 3.5 front and 3.0 Rear so stock tires will look funny.

I am thinking about putting my 35 inch AT's on my stock 18x8's and hopefully the tires will tuck in enough. I know with stock wheels and tires the actually suck in. However i am hoping it doesn't rub on anything and i know guys say it will if it wasn't at least leveled but i am lifted 3.5 inches. I actually have found out yesterday that when i turn hard right that the tire rubs on the brake line a little bit and you can see where it has been rubbing. I tried bending the bracket some to fix that. the stock wheels are 6.1 BS and the tire rubbing might actually get worse.

Its i make the stock wheels work with my 35's AT's and make the brake line work or just install fender flares. Fender flares isn't really the problem, but i need to run mud flaps regardless. Weathertech has mud flaps that will work if i can stay with stock tires and have them tuck in. But if i want to keeps my wheels and tires now, i need flares and somehow get mud flaps to work.

anybody running 35's on stock tires and not rub? on my lift, my brake hose is mounted upside down for the suspension droop. anybody running flares with mud flaps?

any suggestions and/or help would be appreciated!

Probably easier to stick on some fender flares.

Otherwise, Craigslist has been a good resource for me to find most things I need.

Is there a brand that will allow mud flaps on flares?

When I was stationed in Hawaii, fender flairs were the only thing that the vehicle inspectors would accept. Once they issue you a reconstruction sticker, you are golden and you are never bothered again.

I really don't know bud, I was just trying to help by thinking quick and easy. I assume the ford flares would, they're standard on a lot of models. I think every factory 2 tone paint option includes fender flares?

Don't know how big your 35 are really running but my BFG35 fit my 18 stock wheels and they stay underneath the truck no rubbing at all with a 2 inch lift in the front end and I mean just two inches . I love the fact that I didn't have to go out to fender flares hate the look of it had it on my old truck the kids like it I couldn't stand it looks cheap even when they're painted to match the color of the vehicle

PS if you look for some of my posts you'll see my truck with them on there didn't want to post more pictures again take care

I know this is an old post but i did do the RECON inspections and I am golden. I installed fender flares and some mud flaps on there. Just sucks i had to pay a full price of another alignment check just to make sure the alignment is still in the green just for RECON inspection.

So many trucks here who get their trucks RECON inspected and just remove everything. I'm definitely going to stay on the legal side here.
