Vantage Drive Max_HROliver Rubber, a provider of products and services to the tire retreading industry, announced today the launch of the Vantage Max Drive, an EPA Smartway verified drive position retread for line-haul applications.

This new retread is designed for single and tandem axle tractors.

“The Vantage Max Drive is Oliver’s first Smartway verified dual drive tread, demonstrating Oliver’s continuing commitment to using its 100 years of experience and technical expertise to deliver fuel economy to line haulers” said Philip Boarts, Oliver product
category manager. “This retread provides both long mileage and increased fuel savings for fleets seeking the best attributes from their retreads.”

The Vantage Max Drive, at 19/32nds of tread depth, is available in four sizes: 205, 210, 220 and 230. Oliver’s proprietary compounding delivers low rolling resistance, increased fuel savings and excellent treadwear. It is the third retread in the Vantage family, which also includes Trailer II and Drive. All use Oliver’s exclusive VDI plus feature that acts as a visual depth indicator, helping to enforce pull points while also resisting the retention of road debris. All Oliver retreads carry a national warranty to 2/32nds of tread depth.
