Forklift Tires
When it comes to installation types, there are two types regarding forklift tires: standard and press on. Usually, press on tires are used on electric forklifts and those models operating in indoor applications like for instance warehouses. The press on tires may also be used in light industrial application as well.

Standard tires are mainly utilized on forklifts that operate in outdoor environment or where rough or uneven surfaces require more traction and tougher tires.

There are lots of different kinds of forklift tires just as there are a lot of different kinds of forklifts. The kinds of tires that are most frequently utilized are polyurethane, pneumatic and solid. The kind of tires are dictated by where and what the forklift is used for. It is essential to obtain the correct kind of tires for the task and ensuring the correct pick would have a huge effect on both performance and safety.

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

For light industrial use, both indoors and outdoors, solid tires are best. They are made out of tough, constructed solid rubber. This helps them to stay safer from blowouts, popping like pneumatic tires or damage due to puncture wounds. Because 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. Several solid tires are made with holes in the sidewalls to provide a fairly softer ride. The only problem is that this type of construction makes the load carrying capacity of the forklift less.

Although they are intended for indoor warehouse applications only, polyurethane forklift tires would normally outlast both rubber tire designs. 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 added weight of the machine's batteries. Because of the tire's lower rolling resistance, another advantage of this type of tire is the extended battery life.
