What is a solid rubber tire?
Solid rubber is used to construct solid pneumatic forklift tires. Similar to the POB tires, they cannot be punctured or deflated. Resilient tires are not molded to a steel band but instead are made up of a layered structure that often includes a tread layer, cushion layer, and reinforced base.
Why do we not use solid rubber tires?
Tires made of solid rubber have a higher weight than pneumatic tires. The higher weight will increase the engine load to run the vehicle. So that if a solid rubber tire is used in a passenger car, the car accelerates slowly and wastes fuel.
