The EWRS-AT-NM series of solid non marking skid steer tires were designed to meet the needs of today's job site demands. We came up with a way to offer you serviceability, traction and a comfortable ride all in one!
With serviceable non marking skid steer tire sections, the need for a service truck and specialized technicians is all but eliminated. We have reduced your service tooling down to only a 3/4" wrench in your operator's back pocket and repair parts are readily available in your nearest onsite storage container or in the toolbox of your pickup.
We spared no expense in creating this product and weren't afraid to bring you the largest tread lugs in the industry for serious traction and a long wear life. By reducing the number of lugs on our non marking skid steer tire, we were able to increase the width and height of each lug so we could get rid of the wear bars running through the center which is found in all other non marking skid steer tire on the market. This gave us two things: large voids in our tread pattern allowing for unmatched material clean out, and a long wear life on our bigger lug.
To make this product the total package, we topped it off by engineering a smooth ride into our design. We worked hard to bring you a proprietary rubber compound that would allow enough compression to reduce operator fatigue and stand up to heavy loads. Did we mention that the compound is also designed so that it won't stress crack? Only a premium compound would do for a premium product, that's the Evolution Wheel standard.

Your Guide to Non Marking Skid Steer Tires
Having the right tools for the job is key to a successful operation, and having the right skid steer tires definitely falls right into that. When it comes to skid steer tires, you have a variety of options to choose from. You can choose from tracks or tires depending on the type of terrain or application the skid steer tires will be used in. If between the two you choose skid steer tires, you’ll then have to choose between marking or non marking skid steer tires. This next decision will be based on the type applications your skid steer tires will be used in. Everyone is familiar with traditional black skid steer tires, but non marking skid steer tires are not as well known even though they serve a very important purpose. Let's take a closer look at non marking skid steer tires.
What is the Purpose of Non Marking Skid Steer Tires?
As their name suggests, the purpose of non marking skid steer tires is to ensure the tires don’t leave marks on the surface they’re working on. In most cases, non marking skid steer tires are used in controlled environments as opposed to being exposed to rugged terrain and hard environmental elements. These are useful in applications such as the food, beverage, and pharmaceutical industries which, by law, do not allow black marks on the floor of the facilities due to hygiene reasons. Non marking skid steer tires are also advantageous when working on sites that require non marking equipment in order to preserve the integrity and cleanliness appearance of the concrete. Particularly on light colored floors because it reduces the amount of time and money spent on removing unsightly black marks.
What materials are non marking skid steer tires made of?
Due to the composition of the tire, non marking skid steer tires are commonly lighter in color ranging from white to a light gray, although they can be made in any color that the rubber compounder chooses. Traditional skid steer tires and non marking skid steer tires differ in their physical make-up. Non marking skid steer tires are comprised of a mixture of synthetic rubber and silica. The silica replaces the black carbon found in traditional black skid steer tires that is ultimately responsible for making the black marks.
Performance characteristics of non marking skid steer tires
The key characteristics of non marking skid steer tires include:
- Good traction
- Low rolling resistance
- Low heat build-up
- Non marking
- Same performance as traditional skid steer tires
- Have a slightly shorter life-span than traditional skid steer tires
- Require the use of grounding straps because they don’t have anti-static properties of standard skid steer tires
What are the main differences between non marking skid steer tires and standard skid steer tires?
Let's take a look at the main differences between non marking skid steer tires and standard skid steer tires. Apart from the obvious that non marking skid steer tires don’t leave black marks, there are other notable differences. When it comes to price, non marking skid steer tires tend to be more expensive than traditional skid steer tires.
Standard skid steer tires have built-in UV protection properties that unfortunately non marking skid steer tires don’t possess. Despite this, it’s not a significant issue because non marking skid steer tires are typically used for indoor applications. The good news is that antioxidants are included in the making of non marking skid steer tires that compensate for the lack of UV properties which help to increase its wear life.
Another main difference between the non marking skid steer tires and traditional black skid steer tires is the fact that carbon gives traditional skid steer tires their anti-static properties. This means that non marking skid steer tires don’t expel static making them a hazard. Luckily this safety concern is remedied by using grounding strips.
