VA State Inspection in Chantilly

The Commonwealth of Virginia mandates a number of pass/fail screening checks be performed before a vehicle deemed safe for road travel. During a state inspection your vehicle is checked for any potential safety issues: The brake rotors and drums are checked for wear; the exhaust system is inspected for leaks or carbon monoxide issues; your tires are checked for stability and handling issues; the auto glass is inspected for cracks, and your vehicle’s lighting is checked to ensure that it’s working properly.

Repair Tire

The Tire Industry Association (TIA) defines the acceptable puncture repair area as the “crown” of the tire, approximately 1–1.5 inches in from each tire shoulder.

Patch-plugging a tire from the inside-out is the only safe way to repair a tire. String plugs are a temporary and unsafe repair, and they are not recommended by the TIA.

Replace Tire

A puncture outside the crown, either in the shoulder or the sidewall, can damage the belts and cables in the tire and compromise the tire’s structural integrity.

If a tire is punctured outside the crown area, then the tire must be replaced.
