WHAT YOU DON'T KNOW ABOUT TIRES

HOW TIRES IMPACT OUR DAILY LIVES

when we think of tires ,most of us would probably think of small passenger cars tires, as we  are use to seeing all the time, But did you know, our world couldn't function properly without a tire industry, tires are what makes the world go around,can you imagine the amazing impact it would have, if we never had, or invented tires, it would be like an ocean with out any fish.

The tire you see above is a 2400-49 Earth moving tire which can transport approximately a whole football Field worth of dirt in 2 loads, these amazing large dump trucks cost around 1.2 million dollars and the tire cost can range from 3000 to 4000 per tire. these machines mostly work in quarries, and large developing area.

ONCE the largest tire on record that has since been broken 25 to 35 years ago going back in time this must have been quit a site to see back in those days.

Tire size 33.25-35 cost is around 3500.00

HUGE TIRE

Although a lot of folks view this as the largest tire in the world, I would disagree with that,only because it's a non-functioning tire, this tire was produced ,for advertising and drawing in large crowds for selling purposes, and I am sure it does very well, but isn't used on any kind of equiment.

FARM TRACTOR REAR TIRE 18.4-38 FRONT 13.6-24

WHAT THE FARM INDUSTRY USES FOR TIRES
WHAT THE FARM INDUSTRY USES FOR TIRES

FARM TRACTORS

well if we didn't have tires ,our farmers wouldn't have any way to harvest, our fruits and vegetables ,that we need to live on, and provide our kids, the healthy foods for growing up, like good old corn potatoes, beans , wheat ,apples oranges, and even hay for the cows that give us our fine beefs ,and other animals  that depend on tires on these farm equipment ,that we need to live normal and healthy lives, and this is done because tires are on the tractors, that harvest these fine foods.

FORKLIFTS TIRE SIZE 700-12 FRONT & 650-10 REAR

FORLIFT TIRES

Well those tractor trailers we talked about earlier ,we wouldn't be able to load those Trailers with out any forklift tires ,and they play a huge roll in our industry, most forklift tires are a solid tire that doesn'trequire air in them, these forklifts are able to lift up to 4000 lbs and load and unload tractor trailers, with ease.

These machines, are called container stacker's, there responsible for the stacking of containers in the ship yards, these machines help unload and reload ships and stack and move containers were ever needed , for the containers that are importing and exporting of millions of products, in which we use daily ,with out these tires nothing would be coming into or going out of our country, these tires are heavy duty and can lift up to 50,000 lbs and play a key roll in our shipping industry.

PASSENGER CAR TIRES

Just think of what we would do if we had no tires for our cars ,how would we be able to go to work and support our families, or how could we take a vacation, with out tires on our car or truck.

military applications

MILITARY TIRES

The military tires have changed over the last 50 years or so, there are so much life saving technology today,even from tires, your probably asking, how could that be, well years ago they never had tires, that could with stand a 50 MM bullet hole, in the tire,which made some of our soldiers voluble ,in the battle field, in the past ,but in today's world ,they have come up with solid tires, for protecting  military vehicles and soldiers in combat, these tires can take a bullet and continue moving on, like nothing even happened.

AIRPLANE TIRES

 What kind of a world would we be with out aircraft tires, not a very good one, airplanes are the means of getting from ocean to ocean and with out tires we wouldn't be going very far, and our fighter jets depend on all kinds of tires.

EARTH MOVING TIRE

 Take a look at the gentlemen on the right he must be  really short or those tires are really huge.

I have been looking for a solution for our forklift tires that run on broken glass. We use our forklifts at a glass recycling depot and the hard rubber tires do not stand up more than a few months to the turning and runing on hard surfaces with broken glass on it. Is there a metal track or lining for these tires that would help these tires last longer or some other way to get longer life out of our tires. Any sugestions would be appreciated. You can send your response to gordwgood@hotmail.com

Am surprised at how cheap your quote is on the price off earth mover tyres. There are earth mover tyres for sale in Canada that are second hand and are 60000 u/s dollars each. But anyway that is not a criticism . I think your article is great. Regards Grant
