Re: Tire Laws in PA, state inspection?
What county are you moving to YJ? Chester, Montgomery, Bucks (I think), Delaware, Philadelphia ......and Pittsburg (and maybe a few around Pitt) have "enhanced emissions" requirements......that's where they put the vehicle on a dyno and run it up to 15 mph or so.......I only paid $45 for that inspection + $25 (that may be where the $65 came from) for the regular safety inspection (they pull two wheels at odd corners of the vehicle plus the exhaust... suspension and such) I've seen a few cars with tires that extend beyond the body flares ......but not the tread......and if you're found with them extended too far ......you'll be known as a "pinch" for any of the local and state constabulary that haven't written a ticket in a couple of weeks and need a "target of opportunity" to get their sargent off their back. I once asked a state trooper that I knew why he pulled over "clubers" (local motorcyle club members -HDs) .....he replied that he was always guarenteed that they had at least 3 inspection violations......it was nothing personal. Plenty of "mini monster trucks" around .......
