The John Bean Opti-Tread by Snap-on Equipment is a diagnostic tool that helps technicians evaluate tire tread depth and identify problems with tire pressure measurements for vehicles with up to six wheels. It performs an inspection and provides a detailed written report in less than two minutes.
Opti-Tread displays individual tire pressure and three tread depth readings per tire for a total of 16 measurements along with qualitative evaluations.
The tool runs a full day on a single charge and its wireless Bluetooth communication allows for more freedom of movement. The software can be installed on Windows workstations or tablets and is ideal for use at the service advisor desk for a fast tire condition report, according to the company. Opti-Tread is a useful add-on for audit machines and fast alignment verification in service bays.
