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

Surfaces which are rough or uneven need tougher tires and more traction. Therefore, standard tires are usually utilized. However, they are generally used on forklifts which operate in outdoor environment.

Since there are a lot of different kinds of forklifts, there are also a lot of various types 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 acquire the correct type of tires for the job and making certain that the proper choice would have a big 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 durable rubber and then filled with air, like a truck or tractor tire. Pneumatic tires create an air cushion between the terrain and the forklift itself. This particular design considerably lessens the wear and tear on the machinery and creates a really comfortable ride for the operator. The deep, thick treads on the tires provide the necessary traction required for use on surfaces which are rough and uneven.

For light industrial use, both indoors and outdoors, solid tires are suitable. 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. Since 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. Some solid tires are constructed with holes in the sidewalls to provide a somewhat softer ride. The only issue is that this type of construction makes the forklift's load carrying capacity less.

Although they are designed for indoor warehouse applications only, polyurethane forklift tires will normally outlast both rubber tire designs. The load capacity of polyurethane is a lot higher compared to a rubber tire. These tires work great with well with electric forklifts because of the additional weight of the machine's batteries. Due to the tire's lower rolling resistance, one more benefit of this particular kind of tire is the longer battery life.
