|A popular replacement aircraft tire for light aircraft, the Flight Special is an unsurpassed combination of value and performance. Designed for long tread life, this aircraft tire is built to last. Every strand of nylon cord in the casing has been triple tempered with time, tension and temperature to provide the ultimate in tire construction, uniformity and strength.|
The first group, the 8.00, is section width. Measure the useable tread, even that bit that reaches down the side of the tire, and see the eight inches. The second size, the 6" is the wheel's bead seat diameter. The hole in the tire will be smaller so that it jams on the bead seat so braking forces won't spin it on the wheel. There will be tolerances for both of these sides.
The recommended tube for this tire is our part # 06-06300. (See Accessories)
This weighs approximately 11 lbs.
The inflated size of the tube is dependent on the size of the tire, if that's what you mean. The nominal OD of the 7.00/8.00-6 tube is 18 and the 8.50-6 is 21.5, per the databook.
