AERO CLASSIC TUBELESS TIRE 11-400-5 8PLY

July 27, 2021

These are the standard main tires on Staudacher 300 and PANZL S330 aircraft. I own the latter. Your choice for an 11/400-5 tire are the Cheng/Shin (Lamb) or the Aero Classic. The Aero Classic 8 ply is by far the most resilient and therefore longest lasting, typically running 2-3x the number of cycles as the Lamb equivalent. Definitely worth the premium! Aaron McCartan

I am very happy with my new Aero Classic tubeless tires. I installed them and flew them to Oshkosh, Marion Indiana, Buena Vista Colorado and back home to Tehachapi CA. They worked perfectly, never lost pressure and I flew as high as 14,000 feet in Colorado. Love my new tires, thanks Jim. Mike Melvill

The outside diameter of this tire is 11 inches.

Q: Does this Aero Classic tire 11/400X5 require a tube? Which one?

Yes, this requires an 11/400 X 5 tube. Part number 15-04651 can be used for example.

Q: What size inner tube fits the Aero Classic 11-400-5 8 ply rib tire?

See part # 15-04651.

Q: What is the speed range of this tire?

Speed Rating: 100 mph

Q: Are 11/400-5 and 11-400X5 and 11 X 400 X 5 all the same size designators? What does the 400 part measure? Why does a 500-5 tube not need the third part of the size measurement?

Those are all the same sized tire. They have a diameter of 11" they are 4" wide and they are used with a 5" wheel. The 500-5 is 5" wide and used with a 5' wheel. I believe they don't add the third measurement be cause it is a "standard wheel" and the diameter can vary slightly from one manufacturer to the other.

Q: Does this need a tube? I see an answer saying it requires a tube but its titled AERO CLASSIC TUBELESS TIRE 11-400-5 8PLY in my cart and literally says tubeless on the tire. So is it tube or tubeless?

The tire itself is rated as tubeless but you would have to have a tubeless/sealed wheel to use it as such. Most do not which is why we recommend the tube.
