What’s the inspection limit on tire tread depth ???
My car needs its State Inspection by the end of this month and I’m rolling around on severely worn rubber.
I have maybe 1/8” of tread. The wear bars ARE visible, but it’s not quite down to them.
I want to wait until summer to buy new rubber because I run all winter with my snows on.
Why spend the money now and have them sit all winter?
I’m just trying to see if I should put my snows on before going over there for the inspection to be sure it passes.
I get free lifetime State Inspections at my Acura dealer, but I don’t think they will cover a second one if it fails because of the tires.
Any idea what the law is or is it different state to state?

do u also have to take tint off to pass??
Yea, who knows…..I may have the snows on by then anyway.
Might be better because I don’t have to worry about them scratching the BLINGERS.
As for tint….NO.
Pa inspection stations aren’t required to check for illegal tint anymore.
Now it’s totally up to the cops to check that.
Back in the 90’s the inspection DID require them to check the tint.
I always went to Lehigh Valley Acura for my free inspection on my Legend Coupe.
They checked all the important stuff like brakes & lights, but then failed the car because of my tint.
I would then take the inspection paperwork to my “hook-up” buddy and he would put a sticker on the car.
I was quite surprised when the Acura dealer started putting a sticker on there.
Then they explained to me that they don’t check that anymore.
