Pneumatic wheels are a great option for carrying loads over uneven surfaces or in environments that commonly require moving over obstacles. They also have the benefit of providing some additional suspension to protect fragile loads on trolleys or additional grip for moving loads outdoors in wet or muddy environments.
Fallshaw tyres are made from a mix of natural and synthetic rubber in 4 ply (or 6 ply for the 400x8HWY) for excellent durability, abrasion resistance, elasticity and strength. Lower quality alternatives on the market have a shiny appearance and a distinctive oil smell, indicating a high proportion of reground tyres (crumbed rubber). This leads to poor strength (particularly around the bead wire which can cause tyres to pop off the rim under load) leading to a short product life.
50-360 kg load capacity pneumatic wheels
The range includes pneumatic puncture-proof wheels, pneumatic plastic-centred tube type wheels, pneumatic steel-centred 'split rim' tube type wheels.

Pneumatics: Nominal wheel size
Our code structure for pneumatics follows an internationally recognised convention that describes:
Tyre width (in inches) x rim diameter (in inches, measured from where the bead wire within the tyre sits on the rim).
So, for example a nominal wheel size of:
Please note: These sizes are nominal only. For more precise dimensions, refer to the diameter x tread width listed alongside other specifications.
250x4 has a tyre width of approx 2.5 inches, on a 4 inch rim.
350x4 has a tyre width of approx 3.5 inches, on a 4 inch rim.
400x8 has a tyre width of approx 4.0 inches, on an 8 inch rim.
Maximum inflation of pneumatics
Warning: Do NOT inflate over recommended tyre inflation pressure (30 psi).
Do NOT allow tyre pressure to drop below 20 psi or wheel may deflate and become very difficult to re-inflate. If you allow the tyre to go flat and you are unable to re-inflate it then you may need to buy an inner tube to be retro fitted to the wheel (available from our Spare parts for pneumatics and general wheels page).
Use of pneumatic wheels other than as recommended can be dangerous.
