No-one likes a price increase, but it's good to be warned beforehand.
So here's the warning: forklift tyre prices are rising again, with some of the major manufacturers set to slap a 5-8% increase on most models.
Tyre makers blame rising costs of raw materials for the move which will impact all markets.
Clearly, tyres are one of the most significant maintenance expenses for fleet owners, but the price rises have a wider impact, and no doubt will also affect the pricing of new machines and other sectors of the industry.
The cost increases can't be avoided, but they do provide some incentive for more careful driving. Owners will surely be encouraging their operators to drive "smoother and safer" to preserve tyre life. And that certainly won't hurt!

"one thing to also keep in mind with the thought of PIT accidents now versus 1992. today's AC powered lift trucks are significantly faster as well. I am sure that speed is a big factor in PIT accidents. I mean really 12 MPH in a reach truck...Are you nuts?".
ratman, United States
"Some Good things about Good sense. The sales rep (Jerry) was proactive and responsive. So support was good. I see them being offered under different brand names, stark , octane. The people offering those brands have been at this along time. So some credibility should come from that. I would contact Jerry at Good sense.".

"A good initiative that will become accepted in time, but a little confusing, particularly around sideloaders.".
