Oliver Rubber has a new dual drive retread

Oliver Rubber Co. has launched the Vantage Max Drive, a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) SmartWay-verified drive position retread for line-haul applications. This new retread is designed for single and tandem axle tractors.

“The Vantage Max Drive is Oliver’s first SmartWay-verified dual drive tread, demonstrating Oliver’s continuing commitment to using its 100 years of experience and technical expertise to deliver fuel economy to line haulers,” says Philip Boarts, Oliver product category manager.

“This retread provides both long mileage and increased fuel savings for fleets seeking the best attributes from their retreads.”

The Vantage Max Drive, at 19/32-inch of tread depth, is available in four sizes: 205, 210, 220 and 230. Oliver’s proprietary compounding delivers low rolling resistance, increased fuel savings and excellent treadwear.

It is the third retread in the Vantage family, which also includes Trailer II and Drive. All use Oliver’s exclusive VDI plus feature that acts as a visual depth indicator, helping to enforce pull points while also resisting the retention of road debris. All Oliver retreads carry a national warranty to 2/32-inch of tread depth.

Oliver Rubber is a provider of quality tread rubber products, services, manufacturing equipment and systems for the North American retreading industry. The company operates two manufacturing plants in the U.S. and is a wholly owned subsidiary of Michelin North America Inc., which acquired the company in 2007.
