STS offers free vehicle inspections in April

Posted on April 1, 2014

Somerset Tire Service Inc. (STS) is offering complimentary 28-point tire and vehicle inspections throughout the month of April in support of National Car Care Month.

“Extremely severe winter weather conditions truly gripped the northeast where all of our full-service car care centers are located,” says 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.

"Our managers have been reporting a significant increase in steering, suspension, and tire and wheel damage. Dangerous potholes also could dislodge wheel weights, causing high-speed wheel shimmy or out-of-alignment conditions. These critical systems must be checked," he says.

"Routine maintenance, especially after such harsh weather, is truly key to helping prevent expensive unanticipated repairs. National Car Care Month is a nationwide effort to focus motorists’ attention on the importance of vehicle care and maintenance, and we are pleased to do our part to help spread the news.”

STS is 100% employee-owned. The company’s complimentary tire and vehicle inspections are available throughout the entire month of April at all 150 locations in New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania.S TS holds the No. 5 spot on the 2013 MTD 100.
