PREMIUM PLUS SKID STEER TIRE XPT SS (extra protected tread skid steer) industrial forklift tires have been developed for the demanding use on boom lifts, skid steer loaders and backhoe forklifts. The innovative three step lug design provides for higher lug stability and strength with added surface for increased heat dissipation, while the unique hook tread pattern increases traction and the heat dissipating notches maximize surface exposure so that heat generated is dispelled swiftly. This enhances the run time and durability of the tire. The self-cleaning terrace keeps the tire clean and the machine more energy efficient.
