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

Surfaces that are uneven or rough need tougher tires and more traction. Therefore, standard tires are normally used. Then again, they are generally used on forklifts which operate in outdoor environment.

Because there are a lot of various kinds of forklifts, there are also a lot of various kinds of forklift tires. The most frequently utilized tires are pneumatic, solid and polyurethane. The kind of tires are dictated by where and what the forklift is used for. It is essential to get the correct tires for the task and ensuring the proper pick will have a big effect on both safety and performance.

For outdoor forklifts which have to operate in an all-terrain atmosphere like on a construction site, the best option would be pneumatic tires. These are made of tough 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 machine and creates a really comfortable ride for the operator. The tire's deep, thick treads provide the necessary traction required for use on surfaces that are rough and uneven.

For light industrial applications, both indoors and outdoors, solid tires are suitable. 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 can not provide the cushion effect. This fact makes them unsuitable 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 forklift's load carrying capacity 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 additional weight of the equipment's batteries. Because of the less rolling resistance of the tires, one more benefit of this particular kind of tire is the extended battery life.
