I might be moving from Manitoba to the Ottawa area.
My question is, I drive a 4x4 truck and my summer tires stick out beyond the fenders about 1.5-2inches. Is that illegal in Ontario? If so will installing fender flares take care of the problem? Also the truck has True dual exhaust (2 pipes from headers back) Whats are the laws on after market exhaust?

The PO cut the cat off the truck when he did the exhaust; I'm sure that is not legal. Do police do many check stops and check that sort of stuff? What sort of fine am I looking at if caught without a cat?

Here in MB I run studded winter tires on my truck, I understand in ON that is illegal?
Thanks in advance. :)

Wheels extending over fenders - ILLEGAL
With fender flares - LEGAL (thin about all Dooleys)
Dual exhaust - LEGAL
Aftermarket exhaust - it's not the exhaust that's usually the problem, it's the muffler.
No cat - ILLEGAL. Fine is $390. Section 5, O/Reg 361/68
Studded tires - ILLEGAL

Hope this helps.

I had a thought on the studded tires.. Maybe Simon could correct me if I am wrong...

I think you have 6 months to register your vehicle and drivers licence in Ontario. So couldn't he run his tires for until he registers his vehicle here being he would look as if he is from manitoba? I know here in Ottawa lots of people from the Quebec side have studded tires and come here frequently, but since they are registered in another provence they dont apply for the rule.

I wish we could have studded tires in Ontario. Having said that you could simply remove the studs and the tire would be legal here.

Studded tires has is an equipment issue, it has nothing to do with where the vehicle is registered. Once you pass the border into this province, you are under this provinces traffic laws. It's true that you do have time to register a vehicle after you move here, but that's irrelevant to equipment issues. If officer's don't ticket non-compliant visitors, it's just a courtesy. Nothing in the HTA says they can't.

Have 30 days to register the vehicle HTA 15(2)
Have 60 days to change over the driver's licence HTA 34(2)

Studded Tire HTA OREG 625
9. (1) No person shall operate a vehicle equipped with studded tires on a highway unless all of the following conditions are met:
1. The vehicle is operated during the period starting on October 1 and ending on April 30.
2. The permit holder of the vehicle is,
i. a resident of Northern Ontario,
viii. not a resident of Ontario and the vehicle is in Ontario for no longer than 30 days
So 2 viii would apply to Quebec vehicles, but once you move here, you must be in compliance
