Safety Instructions for Using Rubber King Solid Tyres

Solid Resilient Tyres, also known as non-pneumatic tyres, are commonly used in heavy-duty applications such as forklifts, industrial vehicles, and construction equipment. These tyres are made from solid rubber, polyurethane, or other materials, and are designed to offer several advantages over traditional pneumatic tyres, including increased durability, resistance to punctures, and reduced maintenance requirements. However, despite their many benefits, solid tyres also require proper care and maintenance to ensure their continued safe use.

Safety and Service

Safety and Service

Here we suggest some important safety and service points for solid tyres

Solid Tyres should be inspected regularly for signs of damage, wear, or other issues that could affect their performance. Inspections should include checking for cuts, punctures, cracks, and other visible signs of damage. If any damage is detected, the tire should be replaced immediately to avoid the risk of tire failure.

Solid Tyres should be mounted by a professional to ensure that they are properly aligned and balanced. Improper mounting can lead to premature wear, uneven tread wear, and other issues that could affect the tire's performance and safety.

Solid Tyres should be stored in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight and sources of heat. Exposure to extreme temperatures or sunlight can cause the tire to deteriorate and lose its strength and durability.

Solid Tyres should be cleaned regularly to remove debris and other contaminants that could cause damage or reduce performance.

Solid Tyres should be used only on appropriate surfaces and within the recommended speed limits. Driving on rough terrain or at excessive speeds can cause the tire to wear prematurely, leading to a potential safety hazard.

Born to Perform


  • Solid tyres rim fitment & demounting should be done only using Fitment Press.
  • Always fit tyres on the proper rim size as suggested by the Original Equipment Manufacturer.
  • Always use standard rims only for fitment.
  • It is advisable to change solid tyres as a pair so that wear rate of left side tyre & right side tyre would be same.
  • Use only application specific tyres for customer specific applications for better results.


  • Solid tyres should not be used on roads for continuous service . Solid tyres are meant for intermittent service only.
  • Never overload vehicle. Solid tyres also having a rated load carrying capacity*.
  • Never over speed your vehicle beyond the maximum speed suggested by Original Equipment Manufacturer.
  • Solid tyres should not be used beyond “SAFETY LINE”.
  • Quick heel type tyres should not be fitted on regular rims.

Tips to Improve Solid Tyre Life

  • Like pneumatic tyres, solid tyres also designed for a particular load carrying capacity.

  • Solid tyre fitment must be done using "Fitment Press"

  • Solid Tyres should not be used beyond "Safety Line"

  • Always "Lift" Forklifts fitted with solid tyres while shifting to distance location instead of driving through road.

Standard Heel & LOC Solid Tyre

  • LOC types are also known as Lip/Easy fit/Quick Heel etc depends on the manufacturer & territories in which these tyres are being used.
  • Rims for standard heel tyre is multi piece & LOC rims are single piece.
  • All dimensional parameters would be same for both Regular type & LOC type of a specific solid tyre size, except for change in fitment rim.
  • LOC types are also known as Lip/Easy fit/Quick Heel etc depends on themanufacturer & territories in which these tyres are being used.
  • Rims for standard heel tyre is multi piece & LOC rims are single piece.

Wear Limit /
60J Line

  • Non Skid Depth
  • “SAFETY LINE” engraving on tyre clearly showing usable tread.
  • Wear limit up to which tyre can be used
  • All solid tyres can be used up to 60J line/wear limit which is a universally accepted standard.
  • Solid tyres can be used beyond Non Skid Depth limit and no need to change tyres once it reaches to Non Skid Depth limit (That is, when tyre tread pattern looks smooth).
  • Only pneumatic tyres need to be changed once it reaches Non Skid Depth/ when tyre tread pattern becomes slick.
  • Smooth tread pattern doesn’t affect Traction adversely at Forklift application conditions on hard floor.
  • All Rubber King tyres are specially marked with “SAFETY LINE” engraving on 60J line to help our customers easily identify the limit up to which tyre can be used and to get maximum value for money.

  • Standard heel Solid resilient tyre rims/wheels are similar to that of pneumatic tyres. That is, it is possible to replace a specific pneumatic tyre size with a standard heel solid resilient tyre of the same rim size.
  • Rims/wheels for standard heel solid resilient tyres are multi piece.
  • LOC solid tyre cannot be fitted on a pneumatic tyre rim/wheel. It required specific rim/wheel.
  • Solid tyres must be fitted on rims/wheels using fitment press only.Fitment using hammers can permanently damage rim/wheel profile.
