From farming and construction, to snow removal and landscaping, Skid Steers vehicles offer many solutions. The demand for these vehicles was very high back in '07 and '08 but has subsided since then due to the economy. However, in recent months, the market has been rebounding. As the global economy begins to turn around, construction begins, farming increases, and every other application that uses these sturdy vehicles grows.

Companies like Michelin and Carlisle have increased production on these type of tires. And many feel the increase is due to the general recovery of the housing and construction markets. Most manufacturers report there is plenty of supply to meet up with the current and increasing demand. That is good news for online retailer, SimpleTire.com, who is also adding more brands and sizes to their skid steer lineup. They have increased availability on many of the popular sizes like 10-16.5 and 12-16.5 and increased the variety of brands they carry in the skid steer market. "The skid steer market has always been a strong segment for us," says the company's COO Josh Chalofsky. They started getting requests for skid steer tires about 9 months ago and has since then sold a bunch through their online website.

Customer look to retailers like SimpleTire for information about the different types of skid steer tires on the marketplace. Many want a tire with long tread life and one that will not cost them an arm and a leg in the process. Since there are so many different options out there, many experts recommend retailers to offer a "good, better, best" option when working with customers. Retailers must understand that these skid steer vehicles are used to make the customer revenue. So a good quality tire will allow the vehicle to run longer and make more money for the customer, and in the end that is what it is all about!
