GOODYEAR FLT SPECIAL 6.00-6 8 PLY 606C81B1
Served me very well for 300+ hours… lots of cross winds … but held up well.
Installed 8.00 x 6.00s on my C206 that Ive been flying for 20 years. They went out of balance within just a few hours. A&P tried adding weights to rebalance, but couldnt solve the problem. For a premium product, Im very disappointed. Im going back to Desser retreads.
after less then 60 flight time on pa/32r301t tiers worn evenly and badly both main tiers became unairworthy plane was flown by experienced owner pilot without any unusual event (no hard braking and almost no braks steering) very disapointed from goodyear 6.00-6 8 ply

Please confirm with your A&P. Most of the time increasing the ply rating is ok but it does increase the weight so it is important to confirm with your mechanic this is ok for your aircraft.
