|A flexible rubber tire with four knobs on center hole. This is Scott P/N 1879 used on Scott Model 2000 tailwheels and some Scott 3-24B tailwheels. Also used on Lang D-501A tailwheel. Replaces Goodyear 6x2 (11 knobs) solid tailwheel tire.|
The original Goodyear 6 x 2.00 tire on the Lang D501 tailwheel assembly has 11 beads. This General only has 4 beads. I have been thru four of the Generals now and am lucky to get 100 hours and 200 landings out of one, before the beads fail and the tire becomes loose on the rim. The original Goodyear lasted 15 years, 500 hours and at least a thousand landings. Find someone that can make a proper tailwheel tire. At 90 bucks a pop there has to be something better. On a tailwheel airplane the failure prone General is a safety issue.
