Oliver Rubber Co. recently introduced a new premium retread – the Vantage Drive. The company said it features a new, technologically advanced tread compound called “Black Armor,” which offers the benefits found in premium truck tires.

The new tread design and new compound work in tandem to provide low cost per mile and improved fuel economy, the company said. The tread is designed to perform best in long-haul applications, but also performs well in regional applications. Vantage Drive is designed to deliver remarkable treadwear with exceptionally low rolling resistance that optimizes fuel efficiency, while delivering long-lasting casing durability, the company said.

Extensive real-world testing by Oliver and an independent testing facility indicates that this new retread delivers up to 4 percent better fuel economy than the best-in-class retreads on the market, the company said.

This retread offers a feature exclusive to Oliver called VDiplus, a visual depth indicator that helps enforce any pull point schedule plus a stone ejector.

The Vantage Drive is available in 205mm (8), 210mm (8.5N), 220mm (9) and 230mm (9.5) sizes with a deep 26/32-inch tread depth, and is designed and recommended for drive positions in long-haul, over-the-road applications. This tread fits most tire sizes used on over-the-road vehicles, including 19.5€‘ through 24.5-inch sizes. The tread offers V-shaped grooves and the premium closed shoulder design is locked to provide excellent tread stability for even wear, the company said.
