The use of seasonal or winter tyres is legislated in some European countries and in others, such as the UK, is a growing trend.
To meet this demand and further grow the market opportunity, increasing numbers of dealership groups and tyre specialists offer a ‘tyre swap’ or ‘tyre hotel’ service. For a largely commoditised service, TreadReader tyre measurement technology now provides the Tyre Hotel with an opportunity to differentiate their service.
Using the TreadReader Hand Held scanner at the point of tyre ‘check-in’, the service provider can quickly and accurately scan the tread depth of all tyres and provide an instant customer report, stating the exact condition and tyre tread depth of the tyres to be swapped.
Alternatively, the vehicle can be driven over a TreadReader Drive Over ramp as it enters or leaves the workshop, again capturing detailed 3D scans of tyre tread depth for all tyres.
