GREENVILLE, S.C. — Michelin North America Inc.'s Oliver Rubber Co. unit has introduced the Oliver Ultra Low Profile (ULP) Vantage Drive, a SmartWay-verified, wide-base, drive-axle position tread for line-haul and regional commercial-truck applications, especially for 18-wheel vehicles.
The ULP Vantage Drive features VDI Plus tread that can resist stone retention and other road debris and help enforce any pull-point schedule, the company said.
Pressed with Oliver's proprietary compound, the tread has properties that contribute to improved treadwear and low rolling resistance, the company said.
ULP Vantage Drive is available in a 390mm width.
