AcuTread – a tire remanufacturing system for the independent tire company owner. The AcuTread remanufacturing process provides unprecedented profits and control to those who desire to follow their own path in the tire industry. The AcuTread process uses leading edge technology to produce remanufactured tires that parallel the specifications, aesthetics, and performance of new tires. AcuTread provides large exclusive territories where you will freely compete against all competitors except another AcuTread product. AcuTread will make you profitable by giving you control over the manufacturing process instead of being an assembly point for someone else’s rubber. So if profits are down, stress is up, and your competition is selling the same retread you do call Jon Langerak at 616-878-0518.

We examine 100% of the casings before retreading. We support our retreads with a retread warranty. And our two patented retreading processes—Pre-Mold™ and Custom Mold™—are designed for one purpose: to help your fleet maximize its tire assets.
Oliver’s core business is the manufacture of quality precure and mold cure tread rubber for the retreading industry. Our goal is to deliver simple and unique technologies and benefits that assist fleet operations in streamlining their overall tire and service expenditures. Our VDi plus™ feature, for example, helps simplify visual tread depth gauging and is offered by no other retread product in the industry.
