Oliver Rubber, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Michelin North America, has released a new all-position procure retread for regional, spread axle and on/off road applications. The Regional A/P is designed for single axle, tandem axle, tanker, spread/multi-axle and conventional applications.
“The Regional A/P builds on the success of Oliver’s 100 years of experience in manufacturing retread products by adding rounded shoulders to fight the lateral forces inherent to on/off road and spread axle applications,” said Philip Boarts, product category manager, Retread for Michelin Americas Truck Tires. “The retread provides excellent chip, cut and chunk resistance, while supplying excellent mileage.”
According to the company, the tire’s rounded shoulders fight lateral forces common in spread axle conditions. The five rib solid shoulder design and Oliver compounds offer long, even wear – even in toughest conditions.
The Regional A/P includes Oliver’s exclusive VDiplus feature. This acts as a visual depth indicator, plus it resists the retention of road debris and helps in the enforcement of pull points, Oliver said.
The retread is available in four sizes. All Oliver retreads carry a national warranty to 2/32nds of tread depth.
