This tire has a smooth tread design suitable for professional grounds crew / maintenance machines as well as a wide variety of experimental aircraft, including utilization as a nose tire on the Long-EZE.
I just installed on my Long-EZ and am pleased. I have only one landing but handled well on landing and taxi.
SLICK NOSE TIRE 2.80 X 4
Good quality replacement for my Varieze. Its a Chen brand. Its just a bit smaller in diameter than the original sawtooth Carlisle and a bit more narrow too. Should work great.
Good Long ez nose wheel. Slick, better for pusher prop.
So far so good. This one is a good tire for the Long EZ or Varieze nose wheel. Slick tire doesnt throw rocks through the propeller on any pusher aircraft. Have about 25 hours on mine with quite a few touch and go landings at the early hours checking out in the airplane.
