BOUND BROOK, N.J. (April 3, 2014) — STS Tire & Auto Centers is offering a complimentary 28-point tire and vehicle inspection throughout April in support of National Car Care Month.

The dealership’s inspection regimen includes checking tires, brakes, headlights, fluid levels, the air filter and battery, belts, hoses and more.

“Extremely severe winter weather conditions truly gripped the Northeast where all of our full-service car care centers are located,” said STS President Bill Caulin. “Now that spring is here, we encourage our customers and neighbors to visit and have their cars inspected by our highly skilled technicians before getting back out on the road.”

STS’s store managers have seen a significant increase in steering, suspension, and tire and wheel damage, Mr. Caulin said, noting that potholes can dislodge wheel weights, causing high-speed wheel shimmy or out-of-alignment conditions.

“These critical systems must be checked,” he said. “Routine maintenance—especially after such harsh weather—is truly key to helping prevent expensive unanticipated repairs.”

National Car Care Month, an initiative of the Car Care Council, is a nationwide effort to focus motorists’ attention on the importance of vehicle care and maintenance, Mr. Caulin said.

Employee-owned STS will offer the inspections at its 150 locations in New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania. For additional information and to find a location, visit the dealership’s website.

Titan International and the United Steelworkers union have petitioned the U.S. International Trade Commission and U.S. Department of Commerce seeking relief from OTR tire imports from China, India and Sri Lanka. What’s your opinion?

I wholeheartedly support their action – something needs to be done.

I think it’s a bad idea that could inevitably tie the hands of domestic tire makers.

I oppose any duties against tire importers—they only raise costs for distributors and make it harder to obtain inventory.

I’m kind of on the fence and not sure what’s right, but need more information before deciding.

I don’t really care whether or not relief is granted.
