Standard Fit and Quick Fit are two types of solid forklift tire designs that require different installation methods.
Standard Fit tires are used on vehicles with split rims, which typically consist of two or more separate pieces that bolt together using a locking ring and flange. When installing Standard Fit tires, specialized equipment such as tire presses and hydraulic machines are often required. The tires are pressed onto the rims with significant force to ensure a secure fit. This installation method takes more time and effort compared to Quick Fit.
On the other hand, Quick Fit tires, also known as click/lip tires, are designed for a one-piece or multi-piece rim that does not have a locking ring, flange, or advance band. These tires are specifically designed for quick and easy installation, without the need for specialized equipment. Quick Fit tires often feature a split rim design or other mechanisms that facilitate a straightforward installation process. They are preferred in situations where rapid tire replacement or maintenance is necessary.
When ordering forklift tires, it is crucial to ensure that you select the correct fitment based on the type of wheel rims your forklift has. This will ensure proper installation and optimal performance of the tires on your equipment.
