Knowing when to replace industrial tyres is critical – replace them too early and you risk spending too much, replace them too late and you risk machine and operator safety.
Trelleborg Wheel Systems have developed an innovation for our premium range tyres that lets operators and fleet managers know with 100% accuracy when their tyres need replacing – we call this innovation “Pit Stop Line”.
Pit Stop Line is simple – as the tires wear down a highly visible orange band appears on the tyre surface indicating that replacement tyres should be ordered and service fitting scheduled. When this Pit Stop Line appears on a tyre it will have approximately 100 hours life remaining meaning that replacement tyres can be fitted at the most convenient time.
Typically industrial solid tyres are replaced with 25% of life remaining. Choosing Pit Stop Line tyres means that you always get maximum value for spend – by never replacing too early.
Replacing tyres early also means taking forklifts out of service needlessly. Choosing Pit Stop Line tyres eliminates needless downtime and keeps machines working.
