Backhoe Tires in Gary
When it comes to construction equipment, you'd be hard pressed to find something more dynamic than the backhoe. One second you could be digging a hole and the next you could be moving loads of rock. Either way, you need backhoe tires that roll where you roll. Shop Firestone backhoe tires in Gary for puncture resistant, traction-ready, and dependable tires. If you work on soft surfaces, put the Radial Duraforce RT Tire on the top of your list. It's designed for traction and stability. It has a larger footprint to reduce soil compaction and a radial R-4 directional tread design to deliver superior grip and traction. But for harsher working environments, there are construction tires like the Industrial Special Backhoe Tire, which features a shock fortified nylon-cord body to resist cuts and punctures. Either way, your Gary Firestone off-the-road dealer can help you select the best backhoe loader tire for your needs.
Gary Dozer/Loader Tires
Dozers and loaders are often critical to a construction site operation. Loaders and dozers move materials aside or into another piece of equipment, like a dump truck or railroad car. Loader/dozer tires support these handy machines, with features like deeper tread and steel radial casings that help them work with changing loads and surfaces. Contact a Firestone construction tire dealer for loader and dozer tires in Gary. If you have questions about scraper tires, we can help with that, too.
Gary Scraper Tires
With the right attachments, a loader can pull double-duty as a scraper. Scrapers come big and small, and in all different configurations. Some are self-loading and use an elevator to load material. Others use an attachment that allows two scrapers to work as a self-loading team, which is one of the most efficient systems. But there are many other scraper-loader configurations. Regardless of the setup, a scraper's job is generally to move its load to an area where the load is dumped. Contrary to rigid dump trucks, scrapers only have to transport their loads a short distance. They're most efficient on short hauls. Firestone has a catalog of scraper tires in Gary to support your scraper configuration.
Gary Skid Steer Tires
A skid loader, or skid-steer loader, can look similar to a scraper but is more compact. It's used for digging and can be equipped to lift, pull, or push material. Skid steer loaders are lighter and more maneuverable than tractor front loaders, and they need equally as versatile tires. Firestone skid steer tire options in Gary include tires like the Duraforce DT Skid Steer Tire, with cut resistance for demanding conditions. Contact your off-the-road tire dealer in Gary for help buying the right skid steer tires for your special equipment.

Around the construction site, you might also need grader tires in Gary for either construction, road building, or even snow removal. Firestone has the right rear and front motor grader tires for your grader. Our grader tires are built tough, with features like a wide base for added stability Plus self-cleaning tread helps support traction in soft or muddy environments to help work run smoother.

Tires for Container Handlers in Gary
Container handler tires are meant for less flexible, but equally as functional equipment, like straddle carriers, stack reachers, and forklifts. Essentially, equipment that rarely stops stacking, carrying, and moving. Depending on the exact application and load, you might prefer a container handler tire with extra wide tread for traction and payload stability, but minimal speed capabilities. 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. Whatever the conditions or load, you can trust that our supply of container handler and crane tires in Gary is ready to deliver. All tires are tested before they can even be considered for placement on any piece of container handling equipment. And they are, at our Center for Research & Technology and the Texas Proving Grounds.
Straddle Carrier Tires for Sale in Gary
Container handlers aren't the only type of equipment that deal with containers. Straddle carriers do too, but a little differently. A straddle carrier works in port terminals and rail yards to stack and move containers. Instead of carrying containers like a truck would, a straddle carrier picks up the container and carries it from underneath. Straddle carriers do away with the need for cranes and forklifts. Straddle carriers might not be road-going machines, but they still need to be able to deal with abrasive surroundings and ever-changing load weights. All Firestone straddle carrier tires for sale in Gary are tested to assure excellent cut protection and wear resistance.
Rigid Dump Truck Tires for Sale in Gary
Dump truck tires support equipment that moves piles of heavy stuff, as opposed to containers of stuff. Dump trucks carry broken cement, sand, dirt, rocks, and any debris that needs to be moved in preparation for a job. They typically move lots of heavy materials at steel mills, quarries, salt mines, and surface mines— all locations where construction tires can quickly get beat up. That's why rigid dump trucks require tires that go beyond your everyday commercial tire. 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 Gary, like the Super Rock Grip Deep Tread Tire and Super Rock Grip Tire.
