  • Illegal? Steering wheel knob and wheel guards.

    First post on this forum, thank you for your service and time, I have two questions.

    First, are steering wheel knobs (so you can avoid "palming" it while making sharp turns) illegal on commercial (14,000 lbs gvw) trucks? If illegal would you pull a driver over for this?

    Second, on passenger vehicles, I believe exo-cages and standard in-car cages are legal if in compliance with regulations (certified welder if welding to frame, no obstruction of sight etc) so by that logic a 2" diameter tube running around the wheel well on the outside of the car to protect said wheel should be legal. If I'm wrong, please enlighten me. I've tried scanning the CA DMV online pages but couldn't find much about car modifications in this regard. If legal, would you pull a car over with said safety devices installed if you saw one on the freeway with correct plates/tags?

    Thanks

      I don't think there is anything about knobs on the steering wheels.

      As for anything that increases the width of your vehicle

      35110. Door handles, hinges, cable cinchers, chain binders, and
      holders for the display of placards warning of hazardous materials
      may extend three inches on each side of the vehicle.



      35111. No passenger vehicle shall be operated on any highway with
      any load carried thereon extending beyond the line of the fenders on
      its left side or more than six inches beyond the line of the fenders
      on its right side.

        Would this fall under that law given that no load is suspended or carried by the tube? It seems to be saying you cannot weld a load bearing structure that extends beyond the factory width of the vehicle.

        CA is very harsh on hot rods and ricers alike unfortunately. I hope to move to a state like yours some day

        Thanks for the replies, I do appreciate them.
