    fenders and the law re wheel coverage

    I was thinking of installing Smittybilt XRC Front Fender Armor ... wondering what the law requires in the way of wheel coverage in ontario

    Im sure this topic has been covered before..just cant seem to find the thread

    this is all i found...

    66.(3)
    Every motor vehicle and every trailer shall be equipped with mudguards or fenders or other device adequate to reduce effectively the wheel spray or splash of water from the roadway to the rear thereof, unless adequate protection is afforded by the body of the motor vehicle or trailer or by a trailer drawn by the motor vehicle.
    So you could argue that anything that “effectively reduces” the spray should be legal.
    66.(4) Exception to 66.(3) (You’ll like this one) You don’t need mud flaps and/or your fenders don’t have to cover your tires if you’re vehicle is “unfinished” and you’re on your way to someplace to finish it

    There are quite a few threads on this topic, not sure why your search didn't come up with anything.
