Disadvantages: the service life is not as long as solid tire, if it's used in hardware factory, spring factory and other metal enterprises, it's very easy for tire breakage to occur.
The second type is the characteristics of forklift truck solid tires, with the advantages of good wear resistance, service life of 3-4 times longer than ordinary pneumatic tires, and no tire breakage (except for tire quality problems).
