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

Surfaces which are rough or uneven need more traction and tougher tires. Thus, standard tires are normally utilized. Nonetheless, they are generally utilized on forklifts which operate in outdoor environment.

There are a lot of various types of forklift tires just as there are many various types of forklifts. The most frequently used tires are solid, polyurethane and pneumatic. The type of tires are dictated by what and where the forklift is used for. It is vital to get the right type of tires for the task and ensuring the correct pick will 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 environment such as on construction sites. These are made of durable 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 design significantly lessens the wear and tear on the machine and creates a very comfortable ride for the operator. The tire's thick, deep treads provide the necessary traction needed for use on surfaces that are rough and uneven.

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 can not provide the cushion effect. This fact makes them not suitable for use on rough terrain. Some solid tires are made with holes in the sidewalls to provide a rather softer ride. The only problem is that this kind of construction makes the forklift's load carrying capacity less.

Although they are designed for indoor warehouse applications only, polyurethane forklift tires will usually 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 due to the added weight of the batteries of the equipment. Due to the tire's lower rolling resistance, one more advantage of this kind of tire is the extended battery life.
