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)?

Radial Tires Provide This Forklift With the Right Amount of Durability and Performance

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.
