Frequently Asked Questions
Deflectors or sometimes referred to as aperture holes are purpose holes in the side of a solid tire that are designed onto the tire for the purposes of:
- Providing a more comfortable ride by allowing some flexibility during operation which is less wear and tear on a machine.
- Creating more surface area to release heat that is built up during the operation of the tire, therefore increasing the overall life of the tire.
- Reducing operator fatigue by providing a more comfortable ride during operation.
Examples of deflectors or aperture holds please refer to our OD, SD, VD and ZD Solid Tire Patterns.
