In a nutshell, Tire Safety Cloud (TSC)
takes our well-proven Tire Pressure Computer (TPC)
Windows™ software into the future
with many new and advanced features at the same yearly price for TPC
In addition to our well-proven professional custom
fitment calculations that our customers have come to appreciate, TSC includes the new Safety Check™ and Safety Shield™ applications,
as well as a number of additional features only available in the cloud. These new features include instant VIN check, a lable
with a QR barcode for instant scanning, much more sophisticated service records, and automatic saving of all the records and lables
for your instant reference.
TSC is designed to work right in a web browser and requires no installation other than the label
printer. TSC supports Windows©, Mac© OS™, iOS™, Android™, and Windows© Mobile™ on virtually all respective modern devices and
form factors, including desktops, laptops, tablets and smartphones.
Safety Check is a new add-on subscription service that allows
you to check a tire's age and recall status simply by entering the DOT code. Safety Check maintains a database of recalls, so
recall information, if a recall exists, is provided quickly, along with the age of the tire. Tires over six years old are flagged
to be recommended for replacement. This application allows you to protect your business by guaranteeing that you are recommending
replacement of recalled and old tires. Because the search is stored in the cloud, you have proof that you checked the tires
if there is a problem later. Safety Shield is a new service that you can sell to your customers for their piece of mind.
The Safety Shield service will notify the customer if there is a recall on any of their tires for a period of six years in the
future. You save time trying to keep up with recalls, training on figuring out tire age, and documenting your professional service.
Exactly as TPC, TSC's Custom Fitment Pro™ produces a conservative (safe) cold tire inflation pressure for custom
fitments. For the original tire size on the vehicle, the vehicle placard gives the recommended inflation pressure for the front
and rear tires on the vehicle. When fitting custom wheels and tires, the seller needs to provide the same recommendations.
One method of doing this is to inflate the tires to the maximum pressure shown on the tire sidewall. This usually results in
a harsh ride, fast center wear on the tires, and unhappy customers. Another method is to look up the tire load capacity at various
pressures in the tire fitment guide provided by the tire maker. This approach requires that you compute the inflation pressure
from the vehicle loads given on the vehicle placard and the values in the tire load table. This also assumes that you remember
to include appropriate safety factors like, for example, the 10% margin required when using a passenger car tire on a light truck.
How well-trained are your employees in doing these calculations? Using Custom Fitment Pro eliminates the need
for tire pressure tables, includes all the required and recommended safety factors, and prevents calculation errors in the process.
You save time: time collecting tire makers' load tables, time keeping up with standards in the industry, and time
double checking your work. Custom Fitment Pro will tell you if the tire selected is too small for the vehicle in question. Custom
Fitment Pro can also provide pressure settings for high-speed vehicle applications. Custom Fitment Pro provides
a correct inflation pressure, and you provide your customer a professional plus-sizing job.
Custom Fitment Pro also computes
the minimum and maximum wheel widths that can be used on the tire size selected. This means that you do not have to look up
this information in the tire maker's fitment guide. Also, the wheel width range provides clear information to show your customer
in cases where the wheel they have chosen is not available in a width necessary for the tire they want to use. Custom Fitment
Pro computes the speedometer change that the customer is likely to see with the new wheels and tires. This is shown as a table
of actual speed versus indicated speed. If this offset is larger than desired, then the customer should be sent to the vehicle
dealer so that the speedometer can be adjusted in the vehicle's computer system.
Finally, Custom Fitment Pro prints
a record of the tire size change, the expected speedometer offset, and the wheel width range for the new tires. This record
may be given to the customer as a summary of the work that was done. TSC also will, with the addition of a low cost label printer available
at office supply stores, print a Supplemental Tire Pressure Label that can be affixed to the vehicle adjacent to the original
vehicle placard. With this label in place, the customer always has the information needed when checking the air pressure in
the plus-size tires. TSC also can print the required Weight Information label necessary when the vehicle is being sold
at retail for the first time.
Tire Safety Cloud saves all the information in the cloud server, and this information
is readily available to you with the provided search functions in each application. This is helpful, for example, if the customer
has inadvertently marred one of the Labels, and you need to print another one. This is also helpful should any
questions arise about how you arrived at the inflation pressure you recommended.
