Forklift Tires
When it comes to types of installation, there are two types regarding forklift tires: press on and standard. Normally, press on tires are utilized on electric forklifts and those models used indoors such as warehouses. The press on tires may also be used in light industrial application too.

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

There are many various kinds of forklift tires just as there are a lot of various types of forklifts. The most commonly utilized tires are solid, polyurethane and pneumatic. The type of tires are dictated by what and where the forklift is utilized for. It is very vital to get the correct type of tires for the task and making certain that the proper choice will have a huge effect on both performance and safety.

It is better to utilize pneumatic tires on outdoor forklifts that function in an all-terrain atmosphere like 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 terrain and the forklift itself. This particular design considerably lessens the wear and tear on the machinery and creates a really comfortable ride for the operator. The tire's thick, deep treads provide the necessary traction required for use on surfaces which are rough and uneven.

Solid tires are best suited for both light industrial indoor and outdoor applications. They are made out of constructed solid, tough 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. Some solid tires are made with holes in the sidewalls to provide a rather softer ride. The only issue is that this kind of construction makes the load carrying capacity of the forklift less.

Though they are intended for indoor warehouse applications only, polyurethane forklift tires will usually 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 because of the extra weight of the equipment's batteries. Due to the tire's less rolling resistance, one more advantage of this type of tire is the extended battery life.
