Full width tons and tire coverage

so I have to deal with tire coverage laws here in my state. But was going to build some full width axles but I have to keep it road legal.

Stock JK WMS is 65.4" from my best data researched. I am looking at 69" WMS for the full width axles. Almost 2" wider each side.

I am already "not legal" but can sometimes slip by. Otherwise I have to toss on some stock wheels.

Anyone else deal with this situation? How did you work around it?

Im open to hear others solutions besides just my own ideas.

Cutting it down and running some custom inner shafts is not out of the question.

Every state is different, but is the law strictly for trucks in regards to tire coverage such as az? If so a jeep can be considered exempt or just put removable mud flaps.

we are not exempt.

mud flaps wont help. our coverage has to be observed from looking top-down. its odd. They state a maximum 4" flare also.

you should move! haha where I am it is only required to have mud flaps to stop excessive water/snow/mud from spraying so during sunny days nothing is needed and nothing from the top down is needed only on the back but then again it is VERY rare a cop actually takes the effort to stop a jeeper and write a ticket for that they are pretty chill

I know that Dynatrac Pro Rock 60s can be used with wheels that have up to 5 3/4" of backspacing. I don't know about Currie or Teraflex, or the others. I'm running wheels with 5 1/4" of backspacing on my 68.5" wide Pro Rock 60s partly for this reason, and partly because I need the narrower track width for my Jeep to fit on my 82" wide trailer. Having more backspacing actually helps with on road handling as well. It isn't going to be enough to keep your tires completely under the fenders, but it will make it look a little closer to legal, and maybe they will leave you alone.
