Smooth Tires for Skid Steers and Loaders

Why Choose a Smooth Tire for Your Skid Steer or Loader

There is an abundance of tread patterns available to operators looking to equip their skid steers and loaders with application-specific tires. Whether it’s a super-deep tread like our Muddy Buddy or a technical tread such as our 550 MultiUse, the tread pattern of the tire you choose will have an enormous impact on your machine’s performance. Because tread patterns play a primary role in the way we talk about tires, we’re often asked why would someone choose a smooth tire (a tire without a tread)? And, what advantages do smooth tires offer?

Skid Steer Tread Patterns for All Conditions

Choosing an Application-Specific Skid Steer Tread Pattern

Tire Tale: New Tires Boost a Skid Steer’s Performance

Radial Tires Give This Farmer's Skid Steer a Performance Boost

A skid steer may be the most versatile piece of equipment on the farm—especially on a beef-feeding operation like Neil Grunzke's near Wells, Minnesota, where he uses his skid steer to move hay, load feed, shovel manure, and scoop snow. For most of their history these multi-purpose machines have been outfitted with basic, bar-tread, bias-ply tires.

Tire Time: The Galaxy Hulk SDS

The Galaxy Hulk: A Souped-up Solid Tire With More Rubber

Skid steers are commonly tasked with working in harsh, tire-killing terrain, leading to frustration with unanticipated downtime and tires that don’t meet expectations. When adding to our broad range of skid steer tires, it felt logical to offer a solid tire for the most brutal conditions—enter the Galaxy Hulk SDS. Reminiscent of Home Improvement handyman Tim “The Toolman” Taylor’s catchphrase, “more power,” we souped up this special solid tire with more rubber! The result is a tire that increases machine uptime and operational efficiency, which adds up to extra dollars at the end of the year.
