COLOMBO, Sri Lanka — Industrial tire maker Global Rubber Industries Pvt. Ltd. (GRI) has developed a wider solid tire, the Globestar Wide Tread (WT), that it said is particularly effective in high-load forklift applications.
The new tire is "is designed to be a truly universal solid tire that consistently delivers a high level of functionality, GRI said, by offering a high load-carrying capacity, extensive tire life and enhanced stability.
GRI said the Globestar WT's tread design adds increased traction in a wide variety of surface conditions while supporting increased stability.
According to the company, the tire's "tread lug depth, lug gaps, circumferential lateral groves and other unique design features ensure that tire runs with minimum noise and outstanding lateral guidance."
GRI claims the tire is one the widest on the market, but it didn't provide tire sizing information or say how much wider it is than its standard forklift tires.
