At Treadfirst, we’re constantly on the lookout for new technology and equipment to make our customers’ lives as convenient as possible. That’s why we’re proud to introduce the Groove Glove as part of our comprehensive tyre services. With the Groove Glove in hand, it takes our technicians less than a minute to provide you with an accurate measurement of the tread condition and wheel alignment for each of your tyres.
How Groove Glove works
Groove Glove is a wireless, cloud-based system which scans each of your tyres and analyses their conditions on the spot. For tread wear and alignment diagnosis, you won’t find anything more straightforward and intuitive than Groove Glove. Here’s how we use the Groove Glove on your vehicle:
- First we take a photo of your license plate with Groove Glove’s built-in camera to identify your vehicle.
- Next we scan the tyres one by one. We place the Groove Glove flat against the tyre, then move it from one side to the other to scan the tyre’s profile tyre. Once scanned, the Groove Glove will display the results for that tyre. Then we move onto the next one. Doing this four times takes less than one minute.
- Once all tyres have been scanned, we upload and print the results. This easy-to-understand report displays the results of each scan, with visual representations and statistics regarding the tread depth, wear and wheel alignment of each tyre. From this, both you and your engineer will know if there are any issues with your tyres.
Once the Groove Glove has diagnosed your tyres, it’ll be clear whether or not you require any repairs, replacements or alignment work carrying out.
The Groove Glove never wastes your time, so if no alignment issues crop up, and your tyres are in good condition, then you’re good to go. If something does need further investigation after the report, then we can move on to that immediately. With Groove Glove, we make it easier than ever to keep your tyres safe.
