We are proud to celebrate the 50 year anniversary of Roadrunner Rubber!
Since 1968, we’ve been hand-crafting “The World’s Toughest Forklift Tire” in our Houston, TX plant. A lot has changed in 50 years, but what hasn’t changed is our commitment to quality and our customers!
In 50 years, we’ve manufactured and installed thousands of forklift tires and shipped them all over the world and the United States. From Portland, Oregon to Portland, Maine we keep you rolling!
With a 50 year legacy of quality and commitment, let us help you build your legacy today!
Don’t wait! Get your FREE QUOTE and let us help keep your machines rolling for another 50 years!
