Tire problems that won’t pass the Virginia Safety Inspection
Inspectors must follow certain guidelines that are set forth by the state.
When it comes to tires, they will evaluate the tread depth and wearing patterns.
A tire won’t pass if secondary rubber or inner steel chords are showing.
Foreign objects, such as nails or screws, in the tires is another indicator.
Other signs are if the tread is flushed with indicators or if the tread is under 2/32 inches in three locations.
Vehicles that have bent or damaged wheels and rims will fail Virginia Safety Inspection.
