Return on Investment
Identify & sell the most profitable service opportunities
- One alignment system per 50 cars inspected is typically required to support additional alignment opportunities
- See current tax code. In many cases full purchase price of equipment is tax deductible
- Concrete and site construction work are not included in the price of the equipment.
- Payback calculation: (Equipment Investment) / (Cars/day X Failure rate X acceptance rate X typical profit X 5.5 day/week X 4 wks/mo)

Don't lose out on hidden alignment opportunities
Tire wear alone cannot predict wheel alignment
In a 100,000 vehicle study, irregular tire wear is present only 13% of the time. If you check only tire wear and base your alignment assumptions on that, you are missing a wealth of opportunities from vehicles that are out-of-alignment but show regular tire wear.
Quick Check Drive® checks every vehicle's alignment.
If you're not checking camber, you're missing out on profitable services
Unlike Quick Check Drive®, many systems do not measure camber. Vehicles with only camber out would likely pass other systems' inspections, letting opportunities and profits go out the door.
Quick Check Drive® checks every vehicle's camber.
Did you know?
Alignment issues are the leading cause of tire wear
Toe and camber misalignments can cause irregular tire wear. Correcting a vehicle's alignment early can protect the tire investment.

Did you know?
False damage claims can hurt your profits
Body damage cameras can save thousands of dollars per month on false damage claims. It is not uncommon for customers to be "mistaken" about when damage occurs.
Automatic tread depth
Inform your customers on critical tire replacement services
- Three-dimensional tread map provides insights beyond a single line scan
- Measures wet and dirty tires to maximize uptime and opportunities
- Color-coded results clearly relay good, marginal or bad treads
Measuring tire tread edge wear is critical to proactive tire safety
A bald tire edge will affect wet weather traction, resulting in longer stopping distances and poor handling. If the edge portion of the contact patch has no tread, it cannot shed water.
Most edge wear occurs on the inner edge of the tire and is difficult to detect using the visual inspection methods.
Single-line scan measurement can vary greatly
Sipes, wear bars and stones can affect the results of a single-line scan - even scans taken in close proximity to one another.
Basic hand-held measurement is obsolete
Prior to digital measurement technology, tread depth was measured using a handheld, plunger-type measurement tool. This method is time-consuming and error-prone.
Today's new tires provide great wet weather handling
But if your tires are worn or bald, they are rolling on water
In emergencies, hitting the brakes should mean STOP
Worn tires mean increased stopping distances - up to 10 car lengths vs new
