TreadReader 3D tyre tread depth scans are created and stored digitally and so provide an accurate record of tyre condition at the point of inspection. The accurate and detailed scans will show not just tread depth, but also any uneven wear patterns indicative of other issues such as incorrect tyre inflation, incorrect wheel alignment or faulty suspension.
