New retread promises excellent all-weather traction and durability, and has been designed for applications like school buses, as well as food and beverage applications.
The Oliver Rubber Company, owned by Michelin, announced the launch of the Oliver Lug Traction Drive, a new lightweight, open-shoulder drive-position retread for regional and urban commercial vehicles.
The company says the tread resists stone retention, other road debris and helps enforce any pull point schedule. It replaces the Oliver Super Traction Deep retread.
“For over 100 years, Oliver has proudly produced top-quality, American-made retreads to keep trucks moving with cost-efficient solutions,” said Adam Murphy, Vice President, Marketing for Michelin Americas Truck Tires. “These new products demonstrate Oliver’s long-standing commitment to fleets seeking the best attributes from their retreads.”
