Oliver Rubber has released a new drive position precure retread for severe on/off road applications. The XS-T is designed for single axle and tandem axle off-road applications such as logging and mining.

“XS-T is our latest specialty retread and is designed for 70% or more off road conditions,” said Philip Boarts, Oliver product category manager. “The retread provides excellent traction due to its raised block sculpture.”

The XS-T accepts chains and can be used with many casing types. It has a self-cleaning tread design. It is currently available in 230 mm and 240 mm sizes; a 220 mm size will come in the third quarter of 2013.

The XS-T includes Oliver’s exclusive VDI plus feature. The tread acts as a visual depth indicator, plus it resists the retention of road debris and helps in the enforcement of pull points while resisting stone drilling conditions and casing penetration issues that typically occur in severe service applications.  

All Oliver retreads carry a national warranty to 2/32nds of tread depth.
