Solid tires for engine forklift come in two tyres, solid press on tires and solid pneumatic tire ( Resilient tire). Solid press on forklift tires (Cushion tire) solid material is bonded to a steel band called a base band. The tire is pressed on to a cylindrical wheel using an industrial press. Solid pneumatic forklift tire doesn’t include a steel band. Many tires used in industrial and commercial applications are solid rubber and look like pneumatic tires. If you have split-wheel or lock-ring type wheels, you should be able to replace the pneumatic tire with a solid tire making your forklift tires flat-proof.
There are several rim options for solid pneumatic tire for engine forklift including:
- Standard / Flat Base
- Solid Pneumatic (resilient) can be either standard or SIT/LOC.
- All press-on (cushion) tires for engine forklift are standard or flat base tires.
- Industrial pneumatic (air) tires for engine forklift are also standard as they require lock/side rings and bead seat bands for mounting.
- SIT (Snap-In-Tire) / LOC – Also referred to as LOC, Clip, Click, Halo or Fast-fit, these are special tires with the lock ring built into the tire. These are only found on solid pneumatic tires.The SIT/LOC hardened rubber lip snaps into the lock ring groove of the wheel. You can easily check if your current tire is a standard or SIT/LOC type. SIT/LOC type tires will not have lock/side rings (need to check on both outside and inside of the tire as some installers mount these on the inside to protect them from impact damage).
