PRESS ON BANDS
Press-on-bands are a solid band of rubber that is bonded to a steel band. Press on bands are normally fitted to machines that only work inside and in areas with smooth floors. They are not very thick and so have very poor cushioning/suspension properties. A special tyre press is required to fit these tyres. The process involves a new tyre being pressed onto the wheel, where the inner steel band stretches over the wheel. This tight fit holds the band in place.
