Get the results of your tread depth check here
In critical situations, a few millimeters can make all the difference, especially at high speeds. Worn-out tires, even if the tread depth is within legal limits, can drastically reduce control over your car while cornering and braking. In wet conditions, a sufficient tread depth is even more essential. Why wouldn’t you check your tires’ condition and protect yourself, your family and pedestrians? Help us make our vision a reality: a world without traffic accidents.
40% of road traffic accidents caused by vehicle defects are tire related
TreadReader uses laser scan technology to quickly and accurately measure the depth of your tire tread. A comprehensive report is then produced for you to pick up at your leisure online. Responsible motorists want to know if their tires are unsafe.
As tread depth declines, you lose grip in critical situations. Many accidents could be avoided if people took responsibility for ensuring their tires protect them in dangerous conditions. If you’re ever forced to brake or swerve at high speed, your safety and that of others depends on the condition of your tires.
TreadReader is our free service that makes you aware of the conditions your tires are in. This way you have one less thing to worry about.
