Aero Classic is our proprietary line of over 50 aircraft tires and tubes made to meet or exceed the original specifications. The Aero Classic range boasts tires and tubes from 8" diameter for tailwheels, up to 56" diameter C-130 inner tubes...and everywhere in between.
Original 2.8 x 2.5 -4 4 ply tire had only 1/8” clearance between at top of tire and fork. This Aero 2.8 x 2,5 -4 ply tire is slightly smaller and provides 1 /4” clearance. Perfect!
On time, On target!
Same problem with two tires installed as front tires of amphib floatplane. Cracks all around after short 2 years on plane.
Made in China junk. Cracks all the way around the sidewall in less than 1 year, stored inside.
I purchased this tire in 2014 for about $42. This tire developed large cracks that ran around the entire diameter of the tire after less than one year of installation on a glider. I have sent photos to Aircraft Spruce. The tire is made in China and its cost is over $50 for an 250X4 tire. I will email photos to anyone who would like to see the quality of this tire. I do not recommend this tire be used for any purpose, especially aviation. email@example.com
