The most popular 'tyred' wheel used in heavy duty applications is polyurethane. This is because it is kinder to floors than solid wheels (such as cast iron wheels or Nylon wheels) under heavy load. The load capacity of quality polyurethane is typically three times higher than rubber tyres, which means that smaller diameter wheels can be used if required. But, not all polyurethanes are the same and they differ in compostion and properties.
