Forestry Tires Should Bring Reliability, Durability to Your Fleet

Bauer Built Tire carries brands that are geared to handle off-road work sites and are made strong, so you can work without worry. Here’s what to look for when making your next tire purchase:

Tire Ply – How thick are your tires? Can they withstand penetration from a rogue tree stump or sharp object on the road? Forestry tires need an extra layer of durability that long-distance fleets do not require. Brands like the BFGoodrich Cross Control tire has a thick ply that is 75-percent wider than their leading competitors, providing protection from penetrations and road hazards even past the outer grooves.

Sidewalls – Sidewalls can be the difference between a puncture and continuing on with your haul. Thick sidewalls will prevent damage from an obstacle or hidden stump on the worksite and absorbs impacts for a smoother ride. The Constellation CAM38, for example, was made with a continuous shoulder design for improved stability over the scope of work.

Shoulders –  Shoulder design will assist with maneuverability in soft soils and messy snow conditions. Tires with ribbed tread designs provide superior traction in those challenging conditions without sacrificing handling or ride comfort for drivers. Cross Control S tires from BFGoodrich have serrated shoulders and grips through various weather conditions.

Versatility – “While the tire elements listed above are designed with rugged terrains in mind, the logging industry also needs a tire that can withstand regional and long-haul trips as well,” added Jody Lane, Wholesale Sales Manager. Tires with heat resistant compounds to reduce internal casing temperatures, offer low-rolling resistance, and have a long tread life, making all the difference in the life of your fleet. The HS50 from Uniroyal are made with tough, reliable tire compounds that fight chips and cuts, but are also a versatile on/off-road, steer/all-position tire that can get the work done.

Bauer Built is dedicated to truck fleets and their tire needs by stocking quality brands like Michelin, BFGoodrich, Uniroyal, Michelin Retreads, and Alliance Constellation truck tires. That’s why we are the industry leader, and we have locations all throughout the Midwest, so we can be there for you when you need us.
