Should I Choose Solid Pneumatic or Press-On Forklift Tires?

In recent years, solid tires have become an increasingly popular tire choice for forklift operators working everywhere from the smooth concrete floors of warehouses to the debris-filled ground of construction sites. Because of the diverse roles forklifts are asked to fill, tire manufacturers like ATG have developed an equally diverse range of solid forklift tires. With so many options available, it can be difficult to decide what tire is correct for your application—which is why we came up with this handy guide for the different types of solid forklift tires.

How the Tire Stole Christmas

Every worker in the warehouse liked Christmas a lot,
But the tire, who worked in the warehouse, Did NOT!
The tire loathed Christmas! The whole Christmas season!
Now, please don't ask why. No one quite knows the reason.
It could be the tire just wasn’t mounted right.
It could be, perhaps, working long hours into the night.
But many think that the most likely reason,
May have been that the tire was not built for the holiday season.
Whatever the cause, the loads or the floors,
The tire moved through the warehouse, hating its chores,
Keeping forklifts, reach trucks, and workers aflow,
Moving quickly to get packages into the stows,
For the tire knew every person and machine in the DC,
Was busy with packages bound for the Christmas tree.

In 2017, Alliance Tire Group launched five new tire styles—including a “world’s first”—and introduced an entirely new brand of truck tires.

A Solid Choice in Tires

The use of solid tires continues to become more widespread within the waste, recycling, and construction industries. As margins get tighter, wages rise, and qualified employees become more scarce in these fields, the need for businesses to reduce downtime and increase productivity is more important than ever. By reducing the risk of sidelining a machine due to tire damage—whether from a chunk of metal or employee inexperience—solid tires can quickly prove themselves to be a solid investment. And with the option to choose designs with shock-absorbing apertures, driving on solid tires has become less jarring.
