There are several tire types available on the market for forklifts. Each type of tire has its own benefits and works well for specific facility types.
Understanding the forklift tires help to know which one is right for you.
There are several tires on the market that work better in certain production environments, thus making them the choice for those production facilities.
Keeping The Floors Clean
Non-marking tires are optimal for facilities that need the floors kept clean at all times. By using non-marking tires, the cost of floor maintenance is cut down considerably.
Facilities, where these tires are used, would include food production plants, textiles, paper mills and even bottling plants. With their low rolling resistance, these tires will extend the battery life of the forklift or lower fuel usage.

Reducing Heat Build Up
Fiberglass tires reduce heat build-up under heavy loads and work great in production areas where heavy material needs to be transported around the plant. By reducing heat build-up these tires are more resistant to chipping and chunking when placed under extreme load weights.
Oil Resistant tires reduce the amount of wear and tear that other tires would see when in constant contact with oily surfaces. These forklift tires are the best choice in production areas where there is a chance of exposure to any type of oil or petroleum products.
These oils can eat through the rubber on the tires, which can lead to accidents or be costly to replace. With oil resistant tires, these problems are reduced considerably.
So, there are a variety of tyres in the market for specific needs. You can choose what works best for you.
