Reviews

Had to make a little extra clearance on my Lancair due to the slightly larger diameter over the 6 ply version. Be aware as it would have caused the wheels to jam up on retraction.

This is a good quality tire at a reasonable price. I get about 3 years of wear before replacement is needed ( about 210 takeoffs and landings.) I am on my third set without any problems at all. I use these tires on the main gear of a Sonex tail wheel aircraft. The tires would last longer if I alternated them from side-to-side, but I prefer to replace them based on age.
