Hunter Engineering Co.'s Quick Tread inspection technology automatically measures tire tread depth and captures vehicle identification in seconds as motorists drive into the service lane.
The compact console provides a clean installation anywhere in or nearby the service drive, thereby saving valuable space, the company notes.
The Quick Tread console includes everything needed to run a fully automatic inspection lane and can be connected to a network printer at the service desk to provide customers inspection result printouts. The Quick Tread system also can be integrated with multi-point inspection providers to supply digital inspection reports and tires offers to customers.
Approximately 25% of all customer tires are in need of immediate replacement or will need to be replaced soon, Hunter says. "By auditing every vehicle and presenting timely, informative tire offers, shops are able to dramatically increasing customer tire sales. Studies show 78% of consumers maintain their vehicle where they purchase tires. Furthermore, motorists are more likely to buy a new vehicle from a dealer where they also get tires."
