Mobile GrooveGlove Tests Tread Depth and Alignment
The GrooveGlove by Tire Profiles LLC offers laser-powered tire tread depth, plus alignment measurement, from a tool that fits in the palm of the hand.
The handheld device utilizes the same technology as the company’s TreadSpec drive-over products, but it’s a mobile tool that can check the tires of any vehicle anywhere.
With a wireless Internet connection, the tool’s software creates a customer report, which the company says boosts both tire and alignment sales.
By placing the GrooveGlove on the tire and sliding the device across the tire, the device measures the tire and generates a report detailing the vehicle’s make and model, tire size and license plate, as well as recommendations for tire alignment, tire rotation and braking distance projections.
