Cushion (Warehouse) Tires

Traction | Smooth | Non-Marking

Traction tires, ideal for indoor warehouse forklifts used outdoors occasionally. The treaded traction tires will give forklift operators more traction on slippery surfaces and assist the forklift on slight inclines, such as loading ramps. A variety of tread types is available. Non-Marking options are also available. 

Smooth tires, ideal for warehouse forklifts used indoors only. The smooth (no tread) design makes these cushion tires more durable, lasting longer for high use applications while also providing the operator a more comfortable ride in comparison to the previsouly mentioned traction tires. Non-marking options available.

Non-Marking tires are available in traction and smooth. Non-marks are often used in warehouses to prevent black marking on the floors, however, food and beverage industry are often required to implement non-marking tires because black tires produce a carbon soot residue when they heat up from usage. Although, non-marks provide plenty of benefits like reduced floor cleaning costs. It should be known, there is a couple draw backs. Because different compounds are used to manufacture non-marks they are not as durable and will not last as long standard black tires, they are usually more expensive, and lastly, a static strap is often required to prevent static build up.

We offer cushion tires for all makes and models of indoor propane and electric forklifts, including the, Toyota 8-Series Warehouse forklift.


Pneumatic Tires

Air Pneumatic vs Solid Pneumatic

Air Pneumatic tires will give operators a smoother ride and provide additional flotation if the forklift is being used in gravel or soft ground. Air tires also come with a much better price tag in comparison to solids.

Solid Pneumatic tires are available in a variety of tread types. Although, solids may come with larger up-front cost, they will last longer and operators don't need to worry about flats. Solid tires can also be re-grooved to provide additional tread to used tires starting to smooth out. Non-marking tires are also available. 

We offer a variety of Non-marking and regular black Pneumatic tires for all makes and models of propane and electric pneumatic forklifts including the, Toyota 8-Series Pneumatic lift truck;



Rough Terrain Tires

Standard RT in stock and available for all makes and models of rough terrain straight mast forklifts and telescopic zoom boom reach forklifts.

Float Tires, frequently used in the turf care and sod farm industry.
