Hey Truckers- Were You Aware There’s a New Tool to Check Your Tire Wear?

K-Line Industries, a leading original equipment manufacturer (OEM) and aftermarket supplier of specialty tools and tooling systems for the turf, agricultural, construction, and heavy truck and equipment markets has made available a tool that guarantees to help eliminate irregular tire wear, ride vibration and lengthen the life-cycle of commercial tires. The Tire Runout Gauge measures both circular and side tire wear conditions to help fleets keep tire costs under control.

The gauge uses a roller wheel which is placed against the tire tread in combination with a gauge bar, individual low and high spot sliders and magnified measurement readout that shows the amount of wear present.

Wear that exceeds limits can indicate a bent or slanted rim, poorly adjusted wheel bearings, improper tire bead seating, tire flat spots or improperly tightened rim clamps and rear rim spacers.

The Tire Runout Gauge is designed as a precautionary tool that can result in quicker identification of possible problems before they turn into early tire removal and unnecessary additional costs.
