Pneumatic : Pneumatic tyres are filled with air and commonly used on outdoor and rough terrain forklifts. They have the advantage of greater traction and flotation on semi-hard surfaces such as gravel lumber.
They also provide some cushioning of the rough terrain, which both adds to the operator’s comfort and helps prevent damage to the running gear of your forklift.
Solid : Solid Tyres are moulded onto steel rings of varying widths and diameters. They require a specially equipped press to mount them on your wheel. They can be made out of differing materials(Rubber, synthetics, polyurethane etc.) to best meet the diverse needs of the material handling industry.

Semi-pneumatic : Semi-pneumatic tyres can help with eliminating flats and creating a more stable load though not as stable as solid moulded tyres.
Other tyre types to consider:
Polyurethane is characterized by their lightweight nature and their high resistance to chunking, or splitting when under load. In most cases polyurethane have about twice the lifespan of rubber tyres and are best suited for light indoor applications such as warehouse work
Non-Marking Forklift tyres
Non-marking tyres are made with one special purpose in mind – eliminating the possibility of leaving black marks on the ground. These tyres are made with hydrated silicas and special additives to accomplish this task.
So you can buy any of them according to your workplace requirements.
