Forklift Tires
There are two kinds of tires that could be used on forklifts: standard and press on. Usually, press on tires are utilized on electric forklifts and those models operating in indoor applications like for example warehouses. The press on tires may also be utilized in light industrial operation as well.

Surfaces which are rough or uneven require more traction and tougher tires. Hence, standard tires are normally utilized. However, they are mostly used on forklifts which operate in outdoor environment.

There are lots of different kinds of forklift tires just as there are a lot of different types of forklifts. The types of tires that are most commonly utilized are polyurethane, pneumatic and solid. The type of tires are dictated by what and where the forklift is utilized for. It is essential to obtain the correct tires for the job and making certain that the correct choice would have a big effect on both safety and performance.

It is suitable to utilize pneumatic tires on outdoor forklifts which operate in an all-terrain atmosphere like 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 forklift and the terrain. This design significantly lessens the wear and tear on the machinery and creates a really comfortable ride for the operator. The tire's deep, thick treads provide the necessary traction needed for use on rough and uneven surfaces.

Solid tires are best suited for both light industrial indoor and outdoor 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 are unable to provide the cushion effect. This fact makes them not suitable for use on rough terrain. Some solid tires are constructed with holes in the sidewalls to provide a somewhat softer ride. The only problem is that this type of construction makes the load carrying capacity of the forklift less.

The polyurethane forklift tires will typically outlast both of the rubber tire designs but are designed for indoor warehouse use only. The load capacity of polyurethane is much higher than that of a rubber tire. These tires work great with well with electric forklifts due to the extra weight of the batteries of the equipment. Due to the tire's less rolling resistance, another advantage of this type of tire is the extended battery life.
