Eliminate Errors with TreadReader™

The TreadReader™ DriveOver improves the quality of the tires you measure eliminating errors and uncertainty. Just by passing over the patch, the fully automated system triggers up to 300,000 measuring points, essential to ensure the most accurate tread depth and tire wear readings.

Available in three different configurations, the TreadReader™ DriveOver can be surface-mounted, flush-mounted or can also be integrated with other workshop equipment like lifts, wheel alignment machines, brake testing machines and vehicle inspection lanes.

The TreadReader™ meets the highest vehicle inspection volumes suiting more than workshops, but also the highest traffic-volume retail locations such as public car parks, company or rental fleet.

Measure 300,000 points within 6 seconds

The scan of each tire relies on up to 300,000 measurement points and is used to calculate tread depths with an accuracy of <0.2mm or 0.008”. The 3D models of the tire tread and the calculated depths can be viewed on TreadManager™, instantly, a PDF report is generated containing vehicle identification, 3D tire scans with color-coded tread warning and error alarms for every axle/tire position, print or e-mail out the report raising your customer’s trust.
