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

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

Since there are lots of various kinds of forklifts, there are also lots of different kinds of forklift tires. The most frequently utilized tires are polyurethane, pneumatic and solid. The kind of tires are dictated by what and where the forklift is used for. It is very vital to get the correct tires for the task and ensuring the correct choice will have a huge impact on both performance and safety.

It is better to utilize pneumatic tires on outdoor forklifts which operate in an all-terrain atmosphere such as on construction sites. These are made of tough rubber and then filled with air, like a tractor or truck tire. Pneumatic tires create an air cushion between the terrain and the forklift itself. 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 give the necessary traction required for use on surfaces that are uneven and rough.

For light industrial use, both indoors and outdoors, solid tires are best. They are fabricated out of constructed solid, tough 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 type 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 because of the extra weight of the batteries of the equipment. Because of the less rolling resistance of the tires, another benefit of this particular type of tire is the extended battery life.
