Oliver Rubber has launched its ULP Trailer (Ultra Low Profile), a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) SmartWay verified retread for wide base single tires.
Oliver says ULP Trailer is designed for long haul wide base trailer applications and delivers enhanced fuel efficiency, providing significant value and performance.
“Oliver Rubber’s new ULP Trailer employs VDi Plus, a visual depth indicator that reduces the retention of foreign objects in the tread face,” says Philip Boarts, product category manager, Retread for Michelin Americas Truck Tires. “The retread, pressed in Oliver’s Black Armor compound, has unique properties that contribute to incredible treadwear and very low rolling resistance. This introduction provides an excellent retread solution for the next generation of wide base singles.”
VDi Plus is an Oliver Rubber exclusive feature that provides easy visual tread depth and reduces the lodging of foreign material abates, the company says.
