Default Emission test due...in need of smaller tires

I need to have an emission test done next month and I am running 35's on my '96 LX450. Anyone have smaller tires that I could swap out for the test? I'm located up in the north, Broomfield area. Can compensate for your time and troubles. Thanks.

I had to do the same. These tests are so dumb.

Thanks to Uncle Ben I was able to slap on some smaller tires and get the emission test done this morning. I was pretty sure that it would pass, but was afraid that they would fail it do to some exhaust/cat work I had had done last year. The shop I had taken it to removed the original 2 cats and installed one cat in their place...they had assured me it would pass, so I went ahead and had the work done on the condition that if it didn't pass they would do the extra work to bring it back to code. Passed with flying colors......they didn't even look under the vehicle to examine the exhaust and cats! Thanks again to Uncle Ben for the use of the tires

Glad it worked out! It is totally luck of the draw if they read the emission sticker on the underside of the hood and see that it needs two cats. Now that you passed the random hopefully they will be happy with road side from now on!

Legally they can't dyno if you vehicle has 35" or larger tires. The safety rollers are not designed for larger tires.
