Polaris Commercial highlights potential cost-savings for non-pneumatic tires.

I recently came across a product listing from Polaris Commercial for Non-Pneumatic Tires (NPT). We’ve posted about the tires previously. Originally designed for military applications, Polaris has moved them into the commercial arena. While their basic pitch for the tire is the same, ability to handle rough terrain and punctures or travel where air tires can’t, they also added another potential benefit for commercial users, cost savings. While I haven’t seen any pricing for the NPT, it is more expensive than the standard UTV tire and probably considerably so. However, if you are operating a fleet Polaris is making the argument that with NPTs you can avoid carrying a spare and/or reduce the number of tires you buy and store for your vehicle fleet. In addition vehicle downtime can be avoided. ¬†Learn more: ¬†Utilityproducts.com
