Oliver Rubber Offers New Drive-Position Retread

Oliver Rubber Co., a provider of rubber products to the tire-retreading industry,  introduced PD Drive, an open-shoulder, SmartWay-verified, drive-position retread for linehaul and regional applications.

Designed for single- and tandem-axle tractors, the PD Drive has 22/32nds of tread depth and is available in sizes 205, 215, 220 and 230. All Oliver retreads carry a national warranty to 2/32nds of tread depth, the company said.

“The PD Drive provides a winning combination of low rolling resistance, tread life and traction in this new Oliver product,” said Philip Boarts, Oliver product category manager. “It delivers bottom-line fuel economy and mileage.”
