I just go pulled over tonight by a city policeman. He told me that my Hoosier Quicktime Pros are NOT street legal. I reminded him that they are DOT legal. He said in Indiana, tires must have tread within 1 inch of the side wall. He was nice about it and didn't give me a ticket, but he said a state policeman probably would.
Has anyone else heard of this.

same with M/T ET Streets... they are not street legal... the DOT numbers don't always make them legal for that, you still need to have sufficient tread.

I think he showed you some favoritism since Indiana policemen may be partial to things called "Hoosier"
