There are a couple different methods for dealing with problematic tyres. The obvious option is to replace old tyres with new, durable ones. The other option is to re-groove existing tyres. Re-grooving tyres is a cost-effective method for tyres that still have plenty of wear, but slip in normal use. We’ll put a new tread in the tyre at a fraction of the cost of complete replacement.
Not all tyres can simply be re-grooved. Some don’t have enough wear and require full replacement. Luckily, we offer an affordable replacement service for a variety of tyres.

Solid tyres are the most widely used forklift tyre. They’re made from solid rubber and are extremely durable.
These tyres are for indoor use only. They’re composed of extremely hard rubber, which gives them a great life span but prevents them from being re-grooved.
These tyres are similar to the tyres on vehicles. They have an inflating valve and an inner tube, making them ideal for rough surfaces. Unfortunately, this also gives them the shortest life span.
Urethane tyres are designed for indoor use and are very durable, though they offer very little shock absorption.
