International Road Check Coming Up – Get Your Truck Inspected First!

International Road Check Coming Up – Get Your Truck Inspected First!

The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) has announced May 16-18 as this year’s International Roadcheck.

International Roadcheck is a high-visibility, high-volume 72-hour inspection and enforcement event where CVSA-certified inspectors in Canada, Mexico and the U.S. conduct inspections of commercial motor vehicles and drivers at weigh/inspection stations, designated inspection areas and along roadways.

Data will be gathered from those three days and shared later this year, as a snapshot of the state of commercial motor vehicle and driver safety.

International Roadcheck also provides an opportunity to educate the motor carrier industry and general public about the importance of safe commercial motor vehicle operations and the North American Standard Inspection Program.

During a routine North American Standard Level I Inspection, inspectors focus on two areas – driver and vehicle safety compliance:

Vehicle safety – Inspectors will ensure the vehicle’s brake systems, cargo securement, coupling devices, driveline/driveshaft components, driver’s seat, fuel and exhaust systems, frames, lighting devices, steering mechanisms, suspensions, tires, wheels, rims, hubs and windshield wipers are compliant with regulations. Inspections of motorcoaches, passenger vans and other passenger-carrying vehicles also include emergency exits, seating, and electrical cables and systems in the engine and battery compartments.

Driver safety – Inspectors will check the driver’s operating credentials, hours-of-service documentation, status in the drug and alcohol clearinghouse, seat belt usage, and for alcohol and/or drug impairment.

Shrader Tire and Oil conducts DOT inspections at our fleet and tire centers.

The Benefits of Computerized Truck Alignments

The Benefits of Computerized Truck Alignments

Is your truck out of alignment?

Our trained technicians can get you on the straight and narrow with our state-of-the-art, computerized, laser alignment service, which is more accurate than manual or infrared sensors.


What can I expect with a computerized laser alignment?

Our advanced computerized wheel alignment system adjusts the angles of your wheels so that they are perpendicular to the ground and parallel to each other. A good wheel adjustment will maximize tire life and make your trip safer by having your truck track true and straight.


What are the benefits of computerized laser alignments?

The major benefit of our laser technology is the ability to achieve the most accurate wheel alignment measurements possible. With laser measurement to 1/1000 of an inch, the system will produce the results you demand.

With Shrader Tire & Oil’s wheel alignment service, you can trust that you’ll save money on tires and fuel with the most accurate laser alignment available.

What Causes Truck Tire Misalignment?

What Causes Truck Tire Misalignment?

What causes your truck tires to misalign?


Tire misalignment can be caused by anything from:

  • Road conditions — Since trucks often drive through rugged terrain, rough road conditions can make the wheels especially susceptible to misalignments
  • Potholes and bumps — Events like hitting potholes and bumps in the road can immediately knock your truck out of alignment.
  • General wear and tear — Every time you drive your truck, you are subjecting it to massive amounts of torque and friction, which results in slow and gradual degradation of its components. Over time, pressure on shocks, springs, and tires, can cause them to slowly slip out of alignment.

​No matter the cause, when your truck starts pulling to either side or you feel a vibration in your steering wheel, Shrader Tire & Oil can set your truck back on track.
