Exclamation Help, I need a "friendly" place to get my car inspected...

My tired are kinda bald, and my sticker is kinda old, but i don't got the money to buy new tires. Anyone know of a friendly gas station or speed shop where i can get my car inspected. It's gotta be in houston though.

thanks.

As a former State inspector, I would say that there IS no more friendly state inspector places anymore. DPS regularly checks out operations on these places. If they let one go, and that person get's ticketed<--this has happened to somone I know, that place of business can get fined from 1k to 10k depending on charges or even shut down. Now they have a program that they can pull their driver's lic away as well<--the inspectors.
Businesses are much more cautious than they used to be.

Good luck if you find one...!

its statewide. They would not inspect my gsx-r because I have no turn signals. They used to do it no problem, but they are getting fined. I just put them on for inspection purposes

Buy some sh|tty used tires and pass the test. When you get money, get better tires, and save the used ones for next time you get in the same pickle...

Yeah, Taylor... I know you didn't mean to get anyone in trouble, but this source may not want people other than you to know this...

PS-And for future reference, they won't inspect "anything", they're just doing it because I called them and asked pretty please. Just goes to show it's good to have friends in low places.
