Vehicle Inspection Systems (VIS) has announced a new tire industry pay-per-use program. The pay-per-use model allows the VIS-Polish wheel-polishing machine to be used on an as-needed basis, rather than paying for the machine up-front, which the company hopes will allow for expanding the market for the VIS-Polish to a wider customer base.

“When safety is the number one wheel end consideration, this new business model will allow tire dealers to offer a complete wheel solution to their customers. We are excited to launch this new opportunity for the tire industry, Mark Keegans, VIS Vice President, said. “We have been successfully testing our existing process as well as developing a new process strictly for fleet customers with great results. One of the comments we continue to hear over and over is ‘you guys have thought of everything’. With minimal upfront costs tire dealers can now offer complete wheel end solutions; specifically, aluminium wheel maintenance which for many is not being offered at the moment. The early adopters of this new program are enjoying the minimal upfront investment and the rewards are high.”

The VIS-Polish, an automated wheel polisher for heavy-duty vehicles, includes sanding and polishing cycles for rims 19.5-24.5-in. With the tire on or off, the machine polishes and reveals hidden damage such as cracks between the bolt holes. VIS has also developed a process specifically designed for fleet carriers.
