Overview:

Superior Tire and Rubber Corp. offers high capacity large OD and ultra large OD wheels in most alternative and standard sizes in the most popular compounds offered; Cushothane® EZ™, Cushothane® XL™ and Cushothane® XL-AC™ 

There is also no limit on OD, though Class 4 and 5 are preferred, which allows for the option of custom solutions. Superior Tire and Rubber Corp. provides access to a large engineering team to make sure your design can fit and meet tight tolerances, high traction needs, high capacity, and on.

Counter Balance Fork Lift

  • Cushothane® EZ - Universal compound with excellent cut & tear.  Ideal for front drive tires in a counterbalance unit
  • Cushothane® XL - Heavy load compound designed for high abrasion applications like the rear steer of a ounterbalance unit
  • Cushothane® XL-AC - Highest dynamic compound engineered to handle the highest duty applicaitons

Class and Capacity Guidelines

Ideal Uses - Loading/unloading tractor-trailer's; handling pallets

Benefits - Electrical means no emissions, minimal noise

Ideal Uses – Operating in tight spaces, handling pallets, picking/storing inventory

Benefits – Can be used to gain more storage space in same warehouse footprint

Ideal Uses – unloading deliveries from tractor-trailers; short runs in smaller areas

Benefits – Rider and walk behind (“walkie”) options

Ideal Uses – Moving Pallets from the loading dock to storage, vice versa

Benefits – Cushion tires great for low-clearance situations

Ideal Uses – Versatile; trucks in this class can handle single pallets to loaded 40- foot containers

Benefits – Mostly for outdoor use, but also indoors in large warehouses

Ideal Uses – Commonly used for the hauling of pulling loads rather than lifting, vice versa

Benefits – Example; Airport “tugger” towing luggage carts

Ideal Uses – Great for lumberyards/construction sites where crews need to lift building materials to high elevations

Benefits – Some are equipped with telescoping mast to provide far greater reach

Assembly Options:

Mold-On

Where the elastomer is molded directly to the mountable hub, providing the quickest and easiest way to install. Hub cannot be reused once the tire wears out.

Press-Fit

Where the elastomer is molded to a press-on rim, which is then factory pressed onto a hub and sold as a single piece. This option has the benefit of quick and easy installation and allows for the hub to be reused when the tire wears out.

Tire Profile and Tread Style Options:

Smooth Crown (SC)

Pros - Best maneuverability and easiest steering

Cons - Lower stability and carrying capacity

Tapered Side Wall (TSW)

Pros - Best carrying capacity, with excellent stability, manuverability, and steering ease

Cons - No known limitations

Straight Side Wall (SSW)

Pros - Highest traction & stability from more ground contact. Typically used in Ultra-Large OD tires.

Cons - Reduced maneuverability and load capacity

Smooth Flat (SF)

Pros - Reinforcement band protects against undercutting caused from uneven loading or overloading

Cons - Slightly lower traction and stability

Tapered Side Wall (TSW)

Pros - Best carrying capacity, with excellent stability, manuverability, and steering ease

Cons - No known limitations

Center Groove (CG)

Allows for heat dissapation, reducing risk of meltdown in long runs applications. 

Also available in double center-groove (2CG) & triple center-groove (3CG)

X-Groove (XG)

Reduces hydroplaning in standing water and improves traction on wet floors.

Also available in double X-Groove (2XG)

X-Groove with Center Groove (XG With CG)

Reduces hydroplaning, side slippage, and improves traction on wet floors.

Suitable for medium to high standing water.

Diagonal Groove (DG)

Highest water dissapation, the most effective for wet floor conditions.

Suitable for high standing water. Provides smoother ride than X-Groove.

SuperSiped™  (SS)

Ultra-fine diagonal cuts in the tread surface - best option for damp or icy floor conditions. 

Can be combined with other grooving options.

DISCLAIMER: All "Tread Styles" that involve the cutting or the removal of surface material will weaken the tire and increase the likelihood of "chunking". Superior Tire & Rubber Corp. recommends avoiding the use of these types of tread styles unless to solve a specific problem in your application.
