Choosing Between Solid and Foam-Filled Tires

More and more industries are turning to skid steers to handle difficult jobs in demanding terrain that challenges even the toughest tires. Between the sidewall-slashing and puncture-threatening debris found on demolition sites and in recycling centers, and the wicked wear caused by hard surface use, skid steer operators in the past would fill their pneumatic tires with foam to maximize uptime and prevent flat tires on the job site.

Also becoming more commonplace is the appearance of small openings, or apertures, on solid tires. But what is an aperture and how does it work?
