It is strongly recommended that some forklifts must be equipped with rubber solid tires. For forklifts, solid tires offer the following four main advantages.

Outstanding performance helps improve productivity:
Because the solid tire carcass of the internal combustion forklift is made of all rubber, the puncture resistance of the tire can be eliminated to the greatest extent. The hazard of tire blowouts in industrial vehicles during load-bearing operations and in harsh operating environments.
The solid tires of internal combustion forklifts have less load deformation and good driving stability. Due to their puncture and tear resistance, they do not need to be inflated, which avoids the drudgery of frequent tire changes and allows for better vehicle utilization. work efficiency. In low-speed, high-efficiency vehicles, the solid tires of internal combustion forklifts can completely replace pneumatic tires.

Reasonable structural design ensures better tire performance:
The solid tire adopts an advanced three-stage structure design, and three rubber materials ensure the integrity of the tire.
The high-rigidity and high-strength base rubber and steel ring support can not only ensure the rigidity of the tire, but also ensure the airtightness of the tire and the rim, fundamentally eliminating the problem of solid tire slip ring.
The highly elastic middle rubber can effectively absorb the vibration generated when the vehicle is running, making the driving comfortable and avoiding damage to the vehicle.
The thickened tread rubber layer ensures the tire's tear resistance and wear resistance, and improves the service life of the solid tire.

Advanced technology and formula design guarantee:
Rubber compounds for solid tires for internal combustion forklifts are designed to maximize tire performance.
In particular, the base rubber is made of imported high rigidity, low heat generation rubber material. The heat and temperature generated by the tire during operation is minimized, and the heat resistance of the tire is improved. Solve serious problems such as solid tire expansion slip ring and burst caused by temperature rise.
The advanced design reduces the tire's rolling resistance. Tested by the National Construction Machinery Quality Supervision and Inspection Center, the rolling resistance coefficient of solid tires is equivalent to that of pneumatic tires, which solves the problem of increased fuel consumption caused by replacing solid tires.

Avoid the risk of tire blowouts, loss of control, and promote safe production:
When the vehicle is traveling at high speeds, such as when the tire hits potholes and other obstacles, it will cause the tire to form between the obstacle and the rim flange. Severe compression set can cause the carcass cords to break and compressed air to push the inside of the tire up from the dotted line to create a bulge.
In more severe cases, it will cause the tire to collapse and rupture, and it will be completely flattened immediately, and the vehicle may lose control. the
Compared with pneumatic tires, solid tires have the advantages of high safety, puncture resistance, tear resistance, wear resistance and long life. They are an ideal replacement for pneumatic tires in the industrial vehicle sector.
Tires are an important part of forklifts and play a vital role in the safety of forklifts. Therefore, some forklifts must be equipped with solid rubber tires.
