Your Chicago Firestone off-the-road tire dealer can help you pick the best off-the-road tires for your application and environment. We understand that it's about more than finding a tire with the correct tread depth and design—price matters, too. What follows is a breakdown of available commercial tires, organized by equipment type.
Backhoe Tires in Chicago
When it comes to construction equipment, you'd be hard pressed to find something more dynamic than the backhoe. One moment you could be moving loads of rock and the next you could be digging a trench. When you roll, your backhoe tires need to roll, too. Shop backhoe tires in Chicago at Firestone and you'll get puncture resistant, traction-ready, and dependable tires. For soft surface work, consider a tire that's especially for stability and traction, like our Radial Duraforce RT Tire. It has a wider footprint to limit soil compaction and a radial R-4 direction tread design for superior grip. But for more challenging work circumstances, there are heavy-duty construction tires like the Industrial Special Backhoe Tire. It has a shock fortified nylon-cord body to safeguard against cuts punctures. Whatever the case, turn to your Chicago Firestone off-the-road dealer for backhoe tires that meet you at your point of need.
Chicago Dozer/Loader Tires
Construction sites are full of all types of heavy equipment, including dozers and loaders. Loaders and dozers move materials aside or into another piece of equipment, like a dump truck or railroad car. Loader/dozer tires assist these versatile machines, with features like deeper tread and steel radial casings that help them work with changing loads and surfaces. Talk to your Firestone construction tire dealer for more information about loader and dozer tires in Chicago, and whether you might need scraper tires, too.
Chicago Scraper Tires
Outfit your loader and it can work also work as a scraper. Scrapers come big and small, and in all different configurations. Some are self-loading. They use an elevator to load material. But others increase productivity with an attachment that allows two scrapers to work as one self-loading system. These are two loader-scraper configurations. There are many more! No matter the configuration, a scraper usually has to perform one job and do it well: it must move its load to a dumping area. Unlike rigid dump trucks, scrapers don't have to transport loads very far. They're best for short hauls. Firestone has a variety of scraper tires in Chicago to meet the needs of a range of scraper configurations. Yours included.
Skid Steer Tires in Chicago
A skid-steer loader, or skid loader, is similar to a scraper, only smaller. It's used for digging and can be geared up to push, pull, and lift material. Skid steer loaders are more maneuverable and lighter than tractor front loaders, and they need equally as versatile tires. Firestone's selection of skid steer tires in Chicago includes tires like the [content-text-6-6] Firestone's catalog of skid steer tires in Chicago includes tires like the Duraforce DT Skid Steer Tire, with cut resistance and a deep tread to support work in rough terrain. Call your Chicago off-the-road tire dealer for help picking the best skid steer tires for your application.
Chicago Grader Tires
Around the construction site, you might also need grader tires in Chicago for either construction, road building, or even snow removal. Whatever the grader application, Firestone has grader tires to match. Our grader tires are built tough, with features like enhanced rubber compounds for heat resistance and excellent traction. Plus self-cleaning tread helps support traction in soft or muddy environments to help work run smoother. It doesn't matter where your grader needs to go. With Firestone construction tires, you can get there.
Container Handler Tires in Chicago
Container handler tires are made for less versatile, though equally important equipment, like forklifts, straddle carriers, and stack reachers. In other words, equipment that never stops moving, stacking, and carrying. Depending on the exact application and load, you may prefer a container handler tire with super wide tread for payload stability and traction, but limited speed capacity. For applications that require plenty of materials to be moved quickly, though, you'll probably want to look a radial tire that can accommodate high speeds. No matter the load or conditions, you can trust that our selection of container handler and crane tires in Chicago is ready to deliver. Plus, all of our tires must be tested before they head to our dealers. And they are, at a 350-acre Firestone facility committed to construction tire engineering and testing.
Straddle Carrier Tires in Chicago
Like traditional container handlers, straddle carriers also move containers. They just do so a little differently. A straddle carrier works around ports and rail yards to move and stack containers. Instead of carrying containers like a truck would, a straddle carrier picks up the container and carries it from underneath. Straddle carriers eliminate the need for forklifts and cranes. They're not road-going pieces of equipment, but straddle carriers still need to be able to overcome abrasive surroundings and constant fluctuations in load size. All Firestone straddle carrier tires for sale in Chicago are tested to ensure outstanding cut protection and wear resistance.
Rigid Dump Truck Tires in Chicago, IL
Compared to container handler tires, dump truck tires help equipment that moves piles of heavy stuff in tough environments instead of containers of stuff. Dump trucks carry rocks, broken cement, sand, dirt, and really any rubbish that needs to find a new home so a job can get done. They typically move lots of heavy materials at surface mines, quarries, steel mills, and salt mines— all places where construction tires can easily be damaged. That's one reason rigid dump trucks need tires that surpass regular commercial tires. They need tires that can provide long traction and wear, and resist cuts and heat. You can choose from a couple of Firestone rigid dump truck tires in Chicago, like the Super Rock Grip Deep Tread Tire and Super Rock Grip Tire.
