New Tyre Depth Scanning Tech unveiled

Most vehicle owners don’t know how to accurately measure their tyre tread depth, that means many people are driving around on tyres that don’t have adequate/legal tread.

But there could be answer to that problem and it comes from the Finnish tyre manufacturer, Nokian.

Nokian and tyre and service chain, Vianor, have just launched a new tyre monitoring service called ‘SnapSkan’ that measures tread depth quickly and efficiently using 3D scanning technology.

The system then texts or emails you the results of the scan.

The tyre company tell us the drive-over scanners are designed to be installed along drivers’ everyday routes – such as parking lots and service centres – and do not require separate equipment to be installed on the vehicle.

“Too many people are unaware of the condition of their tyres, and the threshold for replacing tires seems to be high,” said Ville Nikkola from Vianor.

“We want to use this new technology to raise drivers’ awareness of the condition of their tires by making it as easy to access as possible.”

We will keep you updated with further info on this new technology as it comes to hand.
