Tire Size Recognition
This API offers AI powered OCR (Optical Character Recognition) service to automatically detect the complete tire size with load index and speed index from the picture of tire captured through smartphones.
It can be integrated with various applications where tire size and other key parameters are required as an input. This AI powered back end solution avoids manual entry of tire size.
Our OCR (Optical Character Recognition) model automatically extracts and labels all the key tire information necessary (such as dimensions, markings, and specifications) using computer vision methodologies, and based on the extractions, recommends the appropriate tire to the customer using a generic recommendation engine.
Tires decoded by this API are passenger car tires.

More customers today are buying online. Online tire purchases have almost doubled from 8% in 2011 to 15% in 2019. However, the potential of online tire commerce is not being completely utilized due to a poor user experience.
Let’s understand the e-retail tire market:
- 90% of the consumers don't know their tire size
- 84% of buyers are performing research online before making the purchase
- 80% of the consumers are dropping their shopping basket during their purchase on internet because they don’t know their tire size.
The inability to understand and register tire information is the key deterrent to online purchases. Online portals ask users to fill in fitment details laymen aren’t aware of, thus confusing users and resulting in loss of motivation to proceed with the purchase – which effectively means the loss of a prospect.
Our Tire Size recognition API is a product that future-proofs the customer experience and enables a better user journey.
This AI-powered product helps your customers simply point their phone cameras at the tires and automatically extract and label all the key tire information necessary such as dimensions, markings and specifications. Our AI models are trained specifically for Optical Character Recognition, which makes the information gathering even more accurate.
Integrated with the web application, the customer receives an AI-based tire recommendation best suited for their requirement right on their screens without having to hassle over specific details.
For tire retailers, integrating our Tire Size Recognition API in your applications will improve your day-to-day activities, everytime the tire size needs to be properly identified and managed : for exemple when selecting the right tire in the product catalog, updating tire stocks, or planning tire seasonal changes...
For tire online stores, our API integrated in a tire eshop will increase the conversion rate by simplifying the purchase journey. It will avoid additional costs when shoppers buy wrong tires and have to ship them back.
In fleet management or vehicle remarketing business, when regular vehicle and tire inspections are required, our service improves the overall user experience and avoids errors due to manual entry.
