Oliver Rubber has launched Vantage Trailer II, an EPA Smartway verified trailer position precure retread for long-haul, over the road applications. It is designed for single axle and tandem axle assemblies, the company says.
“The Vantage Trailer II demonstrates the strength of Oliver’s experience,” says Philip Boarts, Oliver product category manager. “This new retread provides excellent fuel economy, tread wear and traction.”
Oliver says its compounding expertise delivers a low rolling resistant, Smartway verified trailer retread. The contact area sustains a solid footprint, resulting in excellent tread life. The rounded shoulders are said to reduce turning and corner stress and help resist curb damage, while the 13/32 in. tread depth includes straight grooves designed for free-rolling positions that result in exceptional lateral traction. This retread is available with or without Serra-Sipes for even greater traction. The Vantage Trailer II is available in four sizes: 205, 210, 220 and 230, Oliver Rubber says.
The Vantage Trailer II includes Oliver’s exclusive VDI plus feature. This tread feature acts as a visual depth indicator, plus it resists the retention of road debris and helps in the enforcement of pull points, the company says.
