members with 32x11.50

I have a question for you. PA laws are really strict when it comes to tires and lifts. I will be buying new rims and tires soon. 15x8 rims and 32x11.50x15 tires. I will be keeping my stock 16x7 and 255x70x16 tires to put on to get by inspections. Now my question is members with 15x8's and 32x11.50 tires how far do they stick out past your fenders. PA says they can't stick out past your fenders and I think they allow a couple inches with fender flares as long as they don't stick out from the flares. I have a 2006 XLT Supercab so I don't have flares. Will I be ok with the width, or am I better of going with a 16x8 rim and 265x75x16 tires since they are only 10.50 I think. If they only stick out a little I should be able to get by with the cops around here, just if it's not that noticable.

I was getting mickey thompson classic IIs and bfgoodrich all terrains if that helps. I't really wouldn't bother me, because most cops don't look for that kind of thing, but my town cops do they can be a real pain in the a**. I actually live up the street from the police station so its lot like they won't see it.

so your stock flares are about an 1 1/2 inch more coverage, im just guessing .So they probally will stick out like an inch. If its only like an inch maybe it wont be that noticable.

Here is the only picture I have with me at work. It is from when I was trying to pick out new headlights and a grill. You can kind of see how far the tires stick out in the picture though.

PA bl*** I seen today I forget what website it was but I was searching Pa laws. That they are going to or that there is a law allready that makes body lifting a truck illegal, it said trucks that were allready lifted before the date would be ok but body lifting your truck after the date
would be illegal. The only wierd thing about that is how would they know when you did the lift. It would be bad news only for people with new trucks, like if they passed the law in 2006 any 2007 or newer truck they see would be illegal. I hope that what I read was wrong because that would just be another sh**** law.

Thanks for all the pics and the help, I think I'll chance it , I really like the way it looks. Maybe they will leave me alone, I just didn't want to risk a fix it ticket or whatever they give. Its not lifted so maybe they won't bother me like they bother all the lifted trucks around here.
