In any vehicle, the tire is the most important part or component because the tire is the only contact with the road or ground and is actually the foot of the vehicle. For heavy-duty equipment and industrial vehicles, tire choice may be more important for heavier loads, and poor quality tires, if they fail, can cause serious damage to the operator and those around him. For factory-specific rigid tires, the best tires are forklift tires
Forklift tires are not all black, round and laid out the same way. If properly cared for, forklift tires can reduce fuel consumption, increase worker safety and increase productivity.
The different types of forklift tyre will also help you choose the right one for your application.

CUSHION FORKLIFT TIRES: Cushion forklift tires are made of solid rubber. They attach directly to the wheels of your forklift truck. They are smooth and have no deep pneumatic tire tread.
SOLID PNEUMATIC FORKLIFT TIRES: As the name suggests, solid rubber tires are made of solid rubber. They are similar to bearing tires, but they don’t give you the same riding comfort on the pavement as bearing tires.
AIR PNEUMATIC FORKLIFT TIRES: Pneumatic tires for forklifts are very similar to car and truck tires. They are made of very strong and durable rubber but filled with air. The size is the same as solid pneumatic tires.
