“The release of TreadSpec 2.0 is the next milestone in our company’s development,” said Dave Boyle, CEO and president of Tire Profiles. “TreadSpec revolutionized the automotive industry when we launched it fiveyears ago, and this latest version will continue the legacy of helping our customers around the world grow their tire and alignment sales.”

The company says the upgraded features for TreadSpec 2.0 include a first-of-its-kind, durable, composite construction that won’t be affected by the harsh environmental conditions found in service drives and repair shops. In addition, the new design has a lower profile on the above-ground version that is easier for customers to drive over and will enhance any service drive with its futuristic look, according to the company.

TreadSpec 2.0 also features a patent-pending system to deflect water away from the system, reducing or eliminating the need for cleaning.

The company began taking orders for TreadSpec 2.0 on Sept. 4, 2018.
