Industrial equipment tires are comprised of three categories: Cushion, Pneumatic, and Polyurethane.
Cushion Tires: Made of a solid rubber compound on a inner steel banding. This category is comprised of solid traction and solid smooth configurations. Generally, cushion tires are intended for indoor use trucks, because they provide better maneuverability and provide excellent traction on smooth surfaces. Solid Traction Tires can be used on unpaved applications, but will require a solid base.
Air Filled are comprised of rubber ply's layered to create a long lasting, durable tire. Air Filled Pneumatic tires are generally ideal for for rough, outdoor terrain.
Solid Pneumatic tires are similar to a cushion tire, and are commonly used for indoor and outdoor applications. While providing benefits like being puncture resistant - ride quality is sacrificed. Solid Pneumatic tires typically cost more initially, but provide a very long life span and are nearly indestructible.
Polyurethane: tires are designed for smooth operation in an indoor facility with solid floors. Polyurethane tires can withstand high-loads and provide a solution to operating in cold-storage areas.
