you don't want to put tractor tires on a truck to run them on the road cause they are expensive and ride rough on the road, we get on the road alot with our tractors to get to different fields and even with air-ride cab and air-ride suspension the ride is still rough on the road and thats traveling 25-34 mph. just think if you would try going over 50 with them.
and in Louisiana the rule is the middle of the headlight  cant be over 54 inches, and my brothers old 98 chevy with 11 inches of lift and 38.5 tires and my cousins f-250 with a 10 inch lift and 40 inch tires are both over the 54 inches but the cops never stopped them. so i guess it matters how strict the cops are in your area.

repieces

SC allows you to raise or lower your vehicle a maximum of 6 inches from manufacturers original height.  Here's the actual section of Article 35 from the SC Code of Laws:

SECTION 56‑5‑4445. 
Unlawful to elevate or lower motor vehicle; exception for “pickup trucks”.  It shall be unlawful for any person to drive a passenger motor vehicle on the highways of this State which has been elevated or lowered either in front or back more than six inches by a modification, alteration or change in the physical structure of the vehicle.  Any person violating the provisions of this section shall be deemed guilty of a misdemeanor and upon conviction shall be fined not less than twenty‑five dollars nor more than fifty dollars.  Provided,  however, this shall not apply to motor vehicles commonly called “pickup trucks”.

GA only allows you to raise or lower your vehicle 2 inches.  Here's the section from Title 40:

SECTION 40-8-6. 
a) It shall be unlawful to alter the suspension system of any private passenger motor vehicle which may be operated on any public street or highway more than two inches above or below the factory recommendation for any such vehicle.
(b) It shall be unlawful to operate any private passenger motor vehicle upon any highway, roadway, or street if the suspension system of such vehicle has been altered more than two inches above or below the factory recommendation for such vehicle.
(c) It shall be unlawful to operate any motor vehicle upon any highway, roadway, or street if the springs relative to the suspension system are broken.
(d) Any person violating this Code section shall be guilty of a misdemeanor.


Beat me to it.
It is one of those grey areas of the law. Will the officers enforce this law NO, there are to many trucks/cars out there that are modded. Now if you go stupied big like you are thinking, then you may find your self with a ticket. You may get away with it in a small town like where I am at, and you may get away with it if you make a custom bumper that hangs down from the frame. I would not push my luck on the road with  Monster Truck!!

Everytime I would take this truck out I would get pulled over.  Most of the time it was by a "cool" cop just to talk about it, while others left me with a seat full of tickets!
