New technology indicates tire wear as vehicle drives over

LinkedIn +

The new drive-over Tyre Profiler from Absolute Alignment assesses tire wear as a vehicle enters the workshop. Customers receive a report on the condition of their tires, which also indicates whether a full wheel alignment is required on the vehicle. This quick and easy ‘health check’ is extremely popular with both motorists and garage owners.

Suitable for small or large workshops, a floor or in-ground mount is available to suit every outlet, and with no moving parts, it ensures a safe working environment.

Chris Dear, Absolute Alignment’s technical director, said, “The Tyre Profiler is an efficient way to work, giving customers peace of mind and workshops the ability to easily identify any potential problems on a car, such as the need for a four wheel alignment, often before it becomes an issue.

“It’s fitting that we now have this as part of our product range just ahead of Tyre Safety Month. With the Tyre Profiler, any under- or over-inflated tires are also picked up on so that tire pressures can be corrected, to make sure stopping distances are exactly what they should be for maximum safety on the road.”

Fully integrated with the Bluetooth 3D wheel aligner, the Tyre Profiler works with a registration look-up system and as part of the remote two-minute quick check that the 3D wheel aligner offers.
