Justifying Cost Of Solid Skid Steer Tires Over Pneumatic Tires

Solid Skid Steer Tire ROI

Pneumatic Skid Steer Tires, although durable and cost efficient, are not 100% fail proof. The likeliness of having a flat tire, especially operating in or around construction sites, can be rather high. All it takes is one shard of metal or bolt to puncture through your tire and you’ll feel like your lost on a deserted island without food or water. Anyone who has owned or operated a skid steer has at one time or another experienced this firsthand, and understands the time, effort, and cost involved in replacing or repairing a tire. Idle Time can be most damaging part of having a flat tire and if you ever calculated the True Cost involved replacing a pneumatic tire you can easily find the real value investing in solid tires. Don’t get us wrong, we know solid tires aren’t cheap. But the ROE (Return On Investment) is in the overall service life of the solid rubber tire which can exceed 4 times that of a pneumatic tire, and of course “No More Downtime!!!”
