Solid Rubber Cushion Tires
Tires provide a critical link to the ground for construction equipment like skid steers, excavators and backhoes. The right tires can optimize your productivity, enhance ride quality and operator comfort, and improve your bottom line. It is for this reason that many fleet owners are swapping out their OEM tires for a heavy-duty, solid rubber tire by McLaren Industries.
Our products incorporate a range of proprietary technologies that make them stronger and more responsive than a pneumatic tire. Read on for more details or get in touch with one of our representatives for more information.
What Is Semi-Pneumatic Technology™?
Semi-Pneumatic Technology is an engineering innovation exclusive to McLaren Industries' solid rubber tires. Its three-layer composition includes a rigid base compound with bead wire running throughout for additional durability, followed by a proprietary cushion compound with shock-absorbing relief holes and a tough outer tread layer for improved puncture resistance.
The result is a tire that lasts four to five times longer than a standard product while delivering improved traction, greater lifting ability and zero downtime due to flats. Together, these benefits translate to a lower cost per hour, without sacrificing performance on a demanding job.
Solid Cushion Tire Options for All Machines — and All Jobs
McLaren Industries' solid rubber equipment tires encompass a range of styles, sizes and tread patterns. Whether you need something that will stand up to the most demanding environments or something economical for everyday use, we can match you with the best tires for your needs. Our core product lines include the Nu-Air series, which consists of:
- Dirt Terrain- for use in rough terrains such as dirt, sand, mud, and rocks.
- All Terrain- rough terrain capability with better performance on flat, hard surfaces
- Rocky Terrain- unique tread design for increased durability for most demanding environments
- Smooth Surface- tires for use on flat concrete and asphalt
- X- Dirt Terrain- the extreme-duty version of our dirt terrain tire
- Air Monster- designed for use in applications requiring lower ground pressure
We also offer the value-priced Maximizer™ line for less demanding applications or occasional use. We deliver all products on standard multipiece rims for fast installation on any skid steer, telehandler, backhoe, or wheel loader.
What Machines Do Our Tires Fit?
We have solid rubber tires for virtually all the wheeled earth-moving and other heavy construction equipment you might use in your construction or landscaping jobs, from skid steers to telehandlers to backhoes and more.
You don’t need to worry about matching up our solid rubber products with your John Deere, Cat® or other manufacturers. We create aftermarket rubber tires for all major brands of heavy equipment machines and we’ll have no problem finding the right solid tires for your machines. As a company that spent years manufacturing OEM parts, we know exactly how to make products that are the right fit for your preferred brand.
In fact, we feel our solid rubber tires are not just a good replacement for your original Cat®, John Deere or other heavy equipment tire, they are better. We know what OEM parts are capable of and we know what our aftermarket products are capable of, and we employ rigorous research and proprietary technology to make sure our rubber tires far exceed your expectations.
You should certainly get in touch with McLaren industries if your current rubber tires are completely worn out, but we suggest you contact us even earlier and switch out your tires right away, so you can start benefitting immediately from the smooth ride, extra strength and unparalleled durability of our line of solid rubber tires.
What Applications Do Our Tires Work In?
Any applications where you would normally use this type of heavy equipment can utilize these tires. One of the benefits of pneumatic tires is that they provide a smooth ride even on rough terrain and offer great traction, the downside being that they puncture easily. Our tires do not.
Thanks to our semi-pneumatic technology, you can get all the benefits of pneumatic tires without fear of puncturing and flats, meaning they are suitable for just about any application.
If your applications tend to run towards typical soft earth environments like golf course maintenance or landscaping, our Nu-Air Dirt Terrain solid tires should be more than up to the job. If you know that some of your work will take place on flat, harder surfaces like concrete or asphalt, the All-Terrain model may be a better fit.
If you expect to be working almost exclusively on hard-surface environments or almost exclusively on very rough terrain environments, you will want our Smooth Surface or Rocky Terrain tires, respectively.
If you’re having trouble matching up the right rubber tires with the needs of your environment, that’s no problem. That’s what we’re here for. When you get in touch with us, one of our McLaren Industries tire experts will discuss your specific machine, applications and needs.
We can then match you up with the ideal McLaren Industries solid rubber tires, whether they fall into one of the above categories or you would be better equipped with one of our specialty tires like the extreme duty X-Dirt Terrain, the ground-sensitive Air Monster or the economical Maximizer™.
