Advantages: wear-resistant, no air leakage, no worries about tire pressure, and subsequent frequent maintenance.
Disadvantages: too heavy weight, oil-consuming version, poor shock absorption ability, and cannot be widely used.
A solid tire is the opposite of a hollow tire (pneumatic tire). Its carcass is solid and does not require inflation.
The solid tire has low starting resistance, simple structure, convenient use and maintenance, small maintenance workload, no need to inflate, and no hidden dangers of air leakage and puncture. Therefore, the safety, durability, puncture resistance, tear resistance, and economy of solid tires are better.
However, solid tires have poor ability to adapt to the road surface, and uneven road surfaces have poor shock absorption ability. The heavy weight of the tire not only increases the weight of the vehicle, but also consumes fuel.
