Quick Tread Edge delivers detailed tire condition diagnosis in less time and with added edge wear detection, providing an improved analysis of overall tire condition, Hunter says. Service providers can now better identify tire wear on the “edge” of every tire while providing customers with informative, in-depth inspection results.

“When a vehicle is moving, a worn edge is actually in contact with the road and cannot shed water during wet conditions, resulting in a loss of traction,” said Alex Smith, Hunter product manager. “A worn inner-edge may be invisible to advisors on the service drive, making automatic edge wear detection a critical piece in providing a complete summary of a tire’s overall tread depth.”

Quick Tread Edge can be installed as a standalone unit with two mounting options, or integrated in a flush mount configuration with Hunter’s touchless alignment inspection system, Quick Check Drive. Quick Tread Edge has a pedestal-free design, allowing service providers maximized shop space. Both systems are connected with Hunter’s online business intelligence tool, HunterNet, which automatically displays digital inspection findings through Flightboard, allowing customers to quickly see their results first-hand. Quick Tread Edge is also compatible with Hunter’s automatic vehicle identification system, Quick ID.
