Tango forklift and Industrial Tyres offer a variety of solid tyres to suit many applications. These can include:

  • Forklifts
  • Skid steer loaders
  • Trailers and various
  • Industrial equipment
  • Bobcats
Key features of solid tyres include:
  • Solid tyres can replace pneumatic tyres in most applications
  • Solid tyres will fit onto the same rims as pneumatic tyres eliminating any additional set up cost and will result in reduced down time and lower operating costs
  • Sizes can range from an 8” internal diameter for small industrial or forklift applications through to 25” diameter for very large mining and construction machines
  • Solid tyres are available in various compounds (2 or 3 compound), tread and colour (non mark)
  • The 2 compound solid tyre can provide an economical alternative and is ideal for low use applications
  • The 3 core compound solid tyre will give the operator a smoother ride while having a hard wearing outer surface resulting in a longer life for the solid tyre
The 3 core compound consists of 3 layers.  The base of the solid tyre is a steel ring, reinforced with hard rubber to form the inside of the solid tyre.  The base is shaped to form a secure fit onto the rim.  The inner layers are manufactured using soft compound to provide a soft and comfortable ride for both the operator and the machine. This is followed by the hard wearing outer surface. The outer surface is generally treaded although a smoother finish is used in some applications.  Maximum wear marks on the wall of the solid tyre will indicate when the solid tyre is ready to be replaced.
