well after reading the thread looks like my car is at risk for the following reasons:

Front tires too wide - they hit the wheel wells when steering is turned all the way.
GPS/NAV - have a folding DVD screen

and of course smoked front turns, smoked covers for license plates, and window tint are also on the list.

its weird.. with 205/55/16 my tires rubbed inside the liner when turned all the way to the left or right. With my current 225/40/18's they rub, though not as much. Probably my offset. Know if there's any way to limit the steering?

I dont know if theres a way, but i know for a fact as ur car stands if u were to be pulled over and checked, they'd pull ur plates off without a doubt.

^ I hear ya. it's almost discrimination.

There needs to be an institution or agency that certifies products for specific cars with a rating system approved by the Government/MTO. Manufactures will be forced to meet the requirements. It can be done as it's already being done with building materials, code reg's, and building inspections. This way, I can modify my car with approved/certified parts, get an inspection with approval and carry the papers (or apply a window sticker).
