We had rubber on a Cat 313bsr, one side got a cut in it and was deep enough to reach the cords.They rusted and then the track broke,replacements were $7000per side.That machine now has steel at $4000 for the pair and we are much happier with the performance. There are places for rubber but there were not enough of them for us,if we did more utility repair then maybe, but we don't and when we do usually a TLB will work.There is a company that makes a bolt on rubber pad that is what I think alot of machines use,they are alot like what is on a paver.
