Kryon will offer a complete line of press-on tires for the forklift industry with the polyurethane formulations developed by Amerityre. While other manufacturers do not offer a "full size" option, Kryon tires are "full size," according to Amerityre.

The Kryon forklift tires are made of non-marking polyurethane, a significant advantage over non-marking rubber tires that are usually priced at a premium to regular rubber tires. This non-marking feature may allow tire dealers to reduce inventories by as much as half.
 
JR Kines, K-2’s President, stated, "I am excited about this opportunity to introduce and distribute Kryon forklift tires to the marketplace. In our tests, these tires have proven to last longer than rubber forklift tires, are non-marking, and are manufactured utilizing environmentally friendly chemicals with minimum energy consumption. This technology makes the tires unique in the industry. With Amerityre ramping up production of the different forklift tire sizes, we expect to meet the considerable demand for these tires nationally and internationally. High quality American made tires like these can provide assured and rapid order delivery." (Tire Review/Akron)
