Forklift Tires
There are two types of tires that can be utilized on forklifts: standard and press on. Normally, press on tires are utilized on electric forklifts and those models operating in indoor applications such as warehouses. The press on tires may be used also in light industrial application too.

Surfaces that are rough or uneven need more traction and tougher tires. Thus, standard tires are usually used. Nonetheless, they are mostly utilized on forklifts which operate in outdoor settings.

As there are many various kinds of forklifts, there are also lots of various kinds of forklift tires. The types of tires which are most commonly utilized are pneumatic, solid and polyurethane. The kind of tires are dictated by what and where the forklift is utilized for. It is vital to get the correct type of tires for the job and ensuring the correct pick would have a huge impact on both performance and safety.

It is suitable to use pneumatic tires on outdoor forklifts which operate in an all-terrain environment such as on construction sites. These are constructed out of tough rubber and then filled with air, similar to a truck or tractor tire. Pneumatic tires create an air cushion between the terrain and the forklift itself. This particular design significantly lessens the wear and tear on the machine and creates a really comfortable ride for the operator. The tire's deep, thick treads give the necessary traction required for use on rough and uneven surfaces.

Solid tires are best suited for both light industrial outdoor and indoor use. They are made out of constructed solid, tough rubber. This helps them to stay safer from blowouts, popping like pneumatic tires or damage due to puncture wounds. As these tires are not filled with air, they could not provide the cushion effect. This fact makes them not suitable for use on rough terrain. Several solid tires are made with holes in the sidewalls to provide a rather softer ride. The only issue is that this type of construction makes the load carrying capacity of the forklift less.

Though they are intended for indoor warehouse use only, polyurethane forklift tires would normally outlast both rubber tire designs. The load capacity of polyurethane is much higher compared to a rubber tire. These tires work great with well with electric forklifts because of the extra weight of the batteries of the machinery. Because of the tire's lower rolling resistance, one more benefit of this particular type of tire is the longer battery life.
