^^^ this. and even if your setup is legal, every officers interpretation of the law will be different. if they want to pull you over, they will.
my first night in my toyota i was pulled over for no mudflaps. apparently (and i never verified) no vehicles can have more than half of thier tire showing (similar to whats mentioned above), meaning from the axle center up, has to be covered. however, he admitted he just used that as an excuse to pull me over to make sure the truck wasnt stolen. ran the vin and let me go.
my advice to anyone whos really worried about it is to look up your local laws and print them out and keep them in your vehicle. wether you choose to argue with the officer, or prove your point in court is up to you, but driving lowered hondas for years i get lumped in with the fartcan, ricer, wannabe kids and get hassled for my exhaust often. ive found that knowledge is your best defence.
please note im not degrading leo's. they have the most thankless jobs ever, but i cross paths with some real choice officers around here that really take advantage of thier badges.
