Inspection Express


State Inspection


We examine tire pressure, making sure the recommended tire pressure is set according to the specifications set by your vehicle’s manufacturer. We perform a thorough visual inspection of your tires, paying close attention to the depth of the tread and the tire wear patterns. Uneven tire wear could be a sign of a misalignment which could reduce the life of your tires and decrease fuel efficiency. We also make sure the tread depth of your tires has not fallen below the recommended levels. The amount of tread on your tires has a direct impact on the stopping distance of your vehicle. We make sure your car is set to provide the best performance when you are on the road.

During a Complete Vehicle Inspection, we will inspect the following tire and wheel alignment components.

  • Tire Pressure Check
