Why do some forklifts have 2 large forklift tires and 2 smaller ones?

Trevor Cowser - November 14, 2017

Front forklift tires are often larger than back forklift tires. Since the load is lifted at the front of a forklift, the front tires need to support it. Meanwhile, back tires are responsible for the truck steering, and a smaller size allows them to make sharper turns and offer maneuverability.

Are there winter forklift tires?

No, having winter forklift tires is not required. While your personal vehicle might need snow tires in the winter, forklifts do not have a similar standard.
