Most forklift industries commonly use solid tyres as it can withstand the rough outdoors. However, there are some people who use solid tyres for both indoors and outdoors applications.

Solid tyres do not really offer the same comfortable ride as a cushion tyre when you drive it across solid surfaces. The initially money spent on solid tires are practically indestructible and tend to last a lot longer than air-filled and cushioned tyres.

Forklift Solid Tyres We Offer

We offer at least 3 kinds of solid tyres here at Forklift4S. Each of these solid tyres have its own different uses and purposes. You will find that it’s necessary to use the right one on your forklifts.

Basic Tyres

These are the most common tyres used by most intermediate forklifts you see. It’s an airless tyre and is made with layers of rubber that are constructed around a metal frame. Sometimes it is constructed around a wheel structure that can be mounted on to a specific vehicle. It can also be made to fit the rims that are made to support pneumatic solid tyres too.

These basic types of solid tyres are made using a different rubber compound and process. They are rolled into thin layers of rubber onto a metal mount frame. Then it is pressed through a hydraulic pressure system. This kind of process hardens the form and makes the rubber hold better. The thickness of the rubber layers varies depending on the use of the tyre. Most times these kinds of tyres can only be used indoors and for short periods of time.

Standard Tyres

Standard forklift solid tyres are extremely stable and are also some of the most common tyres you find on forklifts. These types of tyres are extremely stable, puncture-resistant and are maintenance-free. Standard solid tyres come with a high loading capacity and are extremely economical.

You can use these standard tyres for moderately long hours as it is resistant to heat. There is an extra layer of heat surface engineered into these standard tyres. When you drive a forklift for long hours, the tyres tend to heat up from long usage. Therefore, using these tyres if you use your forklifts for long hours is a plus point.
