Rudys made me put DOT approved tires on my car instead of the japanese ones it had, I wouldn't use them again.

that is beccause they were not DOT haha, its like saying they made you put seat belts and brake pads in your car.

Its not them its SGI guide lines that state you need DOT tires. One huge plus to rudys is the fact they have a drive on alignment machine verse a hoist.

I didn't see it on the inspection form. Frankly that is a pretty bs move, a lot of people get through without changing the tires.

You can be towed, or "possibly" have to get an inspection for not having DOT tires. Although cops will probably only target people running slicks as they are easy to spot

Rudy doesn't do RHD inspections.. But as always Fountain Tire on Henderson, even though they are under new ownership a while back, they are the most lenient. I wish I would've took my car there. I took my car to minute muffler, and they nailed me with so much stupid shit. Then jadan took his evo to fountain tire, and it was a breeze.

Still a strong ass believer in Fountain tire on henderson... like he said under new managment but still amazingly decent to deal with... Jessica's car had to go through inspections last summer here for a police incident (car being to loud, and burnt out signal) which they decided required full mechanical. It passed fairly easy a few odds and ends but where really easy to look the other way on some stuff. I have also heard good things about battery depot for rhd but never had anything go thru there maybe someone else can elaborate on that... but especially with rhd vehicles even at the easiest places expect to fail at least 1 time... They do that to keep SGI off their asses for being to easy and letting everything through... usually if you fail for something random its because that exact reason so dont get dis-couraged.

Why the fuck does everyone want their car to breeze through a safety inspection with no hiccups? If my car is on the road I sure as hell hope it, and all the other cars on the road are FIT TO BE ON THE ROAD.

Those cars haven't gone through safety inspections because they are SK cars and have never needed one. Also bitching about having to put DOT tires on your car has too be a joke. If you go through your own car prior to safety and make sure everything is tip top then you should have no worries taking it to any safety place.

I don't expect anyone to pass an unsafe car. My 180 got through on its first try but that was a long time ago. I have spoken with mechanics that don't have a sniff about RHD and pretty much refuse to safety them. I know some places take it upon themselves to keep RHD's off the road. I am just looking for a fair inspection.

The car has been driven in Alberta for the last year and went through safety at that time as well. It has new winter tires on it and new brakes, the timing belt was done.

no kidding. james you have got to be the biggest dbag i have ever known of. when i bought both my rhd's from out of province, they both have non-dot tires which were the FIRST things i changed as soon as i got them back into the city. it doesnt take an IQ of 10 to feel the NEED to do that.

Why the fuck would I feel the `NEED` to replace a Japanese certified good condition toyo tire? Dipshit. Do you actually think the american DOT certification is any more stringent than the Japanese certification? I realize why they want all tires to be certified (In this case they choose American certification), but if you think there is an actual safety benefit between a Japanese market tire and one sold here you confirm my suspicions that you have an extra chromosome.
