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

Standard tires are mainly used on forklifts which operate in outdoor settings or where rough or uneven surfaces need more traction and tougher tires.

As there are a lot of different kinds of forklifts, there are also many various kinds of forklift tires. The most frequently used tires are pneumatic, solid and polyurethane. The type of tires are dictated by where and what the forklift is used for. It is very vital to obtain the correct type of tires for the job and ensuring the proper pick would have a big impact on both performance and safety.

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

Solid tires are best suited for both light industrial outdoor and indoor applications. They are fabricated out of tough, constructed solid rubber. This helps them to stay safer from blowouts, popping like pneumatic tires or damage because of puncture wounds. As these tires are not filled with air, they can 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 fairly softer ride. The only issue is that this kind of construction makes the load carrying capacity of the forklift less.

The polyurethane forklift tires would typically outlast both of the rubber tire designs but are designed for indoor warehouse applications only. The load capacity of polyurethane is much higher compared to a rubber tire. These tires work great with well with electric forklifts due to the added weight of the batteries of the equipment. Due to the less rolling resistance of the tires, another advantage of this particular kind of tire is the extended battery life.
