1. Pneumatic tires. Advantages: easy to install, less affected by bumps when used by forklift drivers, and the price is relatively affordable. Disadvantages: The service life is not as good as that of solid tires. If used in metal factories, spring factories and other metal-related enterprises, it is prone to tire breakage.

2. Solid tires. Advantages: good wear resistance, service life is 3 to 4 times that of ordinary pneumatic tires, and no tire breakage (unless the quality of the tire itself). Disadvantages: The tires are hard, prone to bumps, troublesome installation, and many procedures. If the installation is not good, it will cause slippage between the tire and the rim.

3. Non-marking tires. Advantages: environmental protection, no trace. Disadvantages: The price will be higher than the price of the first two tires. And the tire supplier prefers producing this kind of tire.

General fork truck tires may freeze in cold environments, especially in areas with heavy rainfall. This natural reaction reduces traction and makes it more difficult for the driver to control the vehicle. If you work in a cold storage, you need to have equipment that can withstand cold temperatures without problems. This is the purpose of snow tires. They have a special surface that reduces moisture and icing, allowing the tires to maintain traction in a cool, slippery environment.
