PA State Inspections and Tire Requirements

pennsylvania-inspection-facility

If you live in Pennsylvania, cars are required to be inspected annually. And, tire tread level is something that is checked and can prevent a car from passing inspection.

In PA, the minimum tread depth is 2/32 of an inch. If you have an inspection coming up and are worried about your tire tread, Champtires can help. There’s no need to spend a fortune on a brand new set of tires – the more affordable option is used tires. Champtires can get you the number of tires you need at a tread level that will pass inspection.

Why Buy Used Tires?

If you’re in the market for tires, considering used tires is a good choice if you’re looking to save money. However, not all used tire stores are created equally, so make sure that you purchase used tires from a reputable seller, such as Champtires.

Even if you just need to replace one tire, the cost of rubber has increased dramatically recently and has caused the price of brand new tires to skyrocket. High-quality used tires are a much more affordable option.

Used tires are also an environmentally friendly choice – you will be using a premium, recycled product.
