You might like the look but you certainly won't like what it will do to your paint if the wheels aren't covered by over fenders. Then when winter comes around and you drive on roads after they were salted, the salt can shoot up from the tires and possibly chip the paint or start to attack previous chips in paint and rust soon eats at your paint. Mud flaps might look unsightly but they protect your truck alot. Also I believe NJ has restrictions on how far a wheel can stick out. I recall the late 90's when idiots had the wheels sticking out like 1-2'.. Anyway you will no longer as of Aug 1rst have to worry about failing at your local dmv inspection station because as of 8-1-10 NJ inspection will only be concerned with emmissions. They will pass you if you have tint on front windows, broken lenses and windsheilds and what ever else one was proned to failing for in previous years.

What year is that GMC kid? Whats under the hood?
