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

Surfaces which are uneven or rough need more traction and tougher tires. Hence, standard tires are usually utilized. Then again, they are generally utilized on forklifts that operate in outdoor settings.

Because there are a lot of different kinds of forklifts, there are also lots of different types of forklift tires. The kinds of tires that are most frequently utilized are pneumatic, solid and polyurethane. The type of tires are dictated by where and what the forklift is utilized for. It is very crucial to acquire the right type of tires for the task and making sure that the proper pick would have a big effect on both safety and performance.

For outdoor forklifts which need to function in an all-terrain environment such as on a construction site, the best alternative would be pneumatic tires. These are made of durable 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 considerably lessens the wear and tear on the equipment and creates a very comfortable ride for the operator. The tire's thick, deep treads give the necessary traction required for use on rough and uneven surfaces.

Solid tires are best suited for both light industrial outdoor and indoor use. They are fabricated out of tough, constructed solid rubber. This helps them to stay safer from blowouts, popping like pneumatic tires or damage due to puncture wounds. As these tires are not filled with air, they could not provide the cushion effect. This fact makes them unsuitable for use on rough terrain. Several solid tires are constructed with holes in the sidewalls to provide a somewhat softer ride. The only issue is that this kind of construction makes the load carrying capacity of the forklift less.

Although they are intended for indoor warehouse use 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 due to the added weight of the equipment's batteries. Because of the less rolling resistance of the tires, another advantage of this kind of tire is the extended battery life.
