How the terrain determines the tire

It is very important to choose the right tire for the forklift. Besides safety aspects, there are differences in ride comfort, traction, suspension, durability and price, among others. Forklift tires for (smooth) indoor floors must logically differ from tires for off-road use. The uneven, often dirty and wet terrain requires a forklift tire with a large tread and suspension, so that even large loads can be moved safely off-road thanks to traction. Pneumatic tires are usually used here.

Solid rubber tires or SE tires indoors

Forklifts used indoors are usually fitted with solid rubber or super-elastic tires, as they are more resistant than pneumatic tires and are suitable for smooth floors. On the other hand, they are less resistant to impact, but this is not an issue in halls. However, these tires cannot withstand high speeds, which is why pneumatic tires are used on diesel forklifts above 25 km/h.

Forklift tires: features and differences

Solid tires Continental

Full Tire

Solid tires are recommended for demanding applications, low speeds as well as a high risk of damage to the forklift tire. The very stable and cut-resistant solid tires are almost maintenance-free and can also transport heavy weight. In addition to forklifts, sideloaders and other industrial vehicles, for example, also benefit from the robust tire. 

Industrial pneumatic tires from Continental

Industrial pneumatic tires

The pneumatic tire is ideally suited for all surfaces and is an optimal tire for the forklift. The good traction and the resulting favorable handling as well as a low rolling resistance speak for the pneumatic tire. Areas of application for a pneumatic tire can be, for example, the forklift or heavy-duty transport. 

OTR pneumatic tires from Continental

OTR pneumatic tires

OTR pneumatic tires are available for large equipment from 24″. The very resistant tires have a high driving comfort and thus protect the driver and the transported load. Very large industrial vehicles and heavy duty forklifts are application areas of the OTR pneumatic tire. 

Frequently asked questions about forklift tires

The tire of the forklift truck should be changed when it has reached the limit of travel or 60-joule bar or it is damaged.

Solid rubber or pneumatic tires
There is no distinction between summer tires and winter tires on forklifts. When the tread is worn to the limit, the forklift tire must be replaced.
Most forklifts probably drive classically in halls, where the floor is often very slippery. The ground can also be slippery in open-air areas, but can be strongly influenced by the weather (e.g. rain, black ice). For rough and uneven terrain, such as gravel or crushed stone, forklift tires are also suitable.

The choice of tires is determined by the duration of daily use of the tire. In 8-16 hour two-shift operation, only mid-range to premium class forklift tires are necessary. In three-shift operation, however, there is a continuous load. Here, we recommend premium tires only.

The industry and the work equipment with which a forklift tire comes into contact also influence the choice of tire. In recycling companies, for example, it is recommended not to use high-quality tires. Here, there is a risk of cuts from parts lying around, such as iron sheets.
