I was wondering the same myself... my 35's measure something like 33-34 when inflated to 35psi. I have a stock set of wheels and tires in the garage though, so i'll just swap those on and be done with it. My TN tags are up next month so I gotta get cracking... I have lots of work to do to get this baby to pass.

Envirotest is a sore point for most...Anytime the government pours money into a single business, even if it was the right one, and mandates they are the only place you can go... you can forget about expecting integrity, honor, customer service, ethics, logic, reason, etc. Monopolies have no incentive to treat you right because you are forced to do business with them. I would fight it if I wasn't in the minority. I have heard plenty of people tell me they got rid of a car because the check engine light was on and Envirotest told them to pound sand. The only loop hole is the gross polluter tag you can apply for after you can prove you dumped hundreds into trying to turn the light off. The system is broken. My advice to you Matt is to see if you can fit a 315 up the shop manager's a**. No reason to be a pessimist, that would be downright funny.

On a side note while you are there, rip down every sign and pamphlet you see that is only written in Spanish.

Part number for an 80 gas cap is 77310-16011. List price $16.21

That would probably be easiest, so I don't have to worry about getting Timm's tires back to him in a hurry. Can you bring them to the October RS meeting?

Thanks for all the advice and stories, guys. I'd rather just go once and get it over with. I'll buy a new gas cap too.

Sure....I think they're up at Robbies so I'll grab them. That works out as I will prolly need to haul home a 60 full floater from the meeting too! (unless someone wants a FJ-60 width full floater rear with Lock right set up for FJ-40 spring under? {shamless plug })

You could swing by and ask the manager. Perhaps (s)he is a sensible person too!

Wow, Root, I agree with your premise... but GEE PEOPLE it is a beautiful day and it is GREAT to be alive and your retirement WILL come back in value, it really will!

Grumpy is a waste of energy!!

That may have come across as a bit bitter but there has to be a better system out there. Post a pic of your puppy and we can save this thread!

No hurry, I can drive with 35's for as long as needed. Give me a good idea on how badly I want some.....

Too late for that.. if they send you the notice that you need to go in, then you didn't drive by enough of the sniffers. On the flip side, if you drove by a bunch of sniffers your notice in the mail would say "no test required."



Here's Belle before she turned all gray..
