This is the second set I am installing. Good service life and no problems encountered during the lifespan of the tires.

Aircraft Spruce is very good to work with, but Aero Classic Tires and tubes are made by Desser Tire Company, and they are not so good to work with. I bought Dessers monster retreads directly from Desser and the treads began cracking all over. I sent them pictures of the tires showing they still have lots of tread on them, but they are just inundated with cracking - they wouldnt warranty them because they insisted my plane had been parked outside in the sun. Of course it hadnt been and I offered to put them in contact with the FBO that keeps my plane in a fully enclosed hangar, but they werent interested in speaking with them. They offered to sell me some more tires at a ten dollar discount. I laughed and swore to never buy another Aero Classic branded tire or tube. I have spent my entire career in customer service so I know what customer service is and what it isnt.

Q: We have Aero Classic 11/400-5 (your p/n 06-01240) tire on the front wheel of our Tecnam P2002. What tube fits this tire?

This tire is 11-400-5 size. The correct tube would be 06-00716.

Q: Is there any documentation on tire wear and if so, at what point in the tires tread life do you recommend replacement?

The only definitive cause for replacement is if the cord is showing in the tread. Otherwise, it's at the discretion of the operator. Just like on your car,if a tire is bald you'd probably want to replace unless you like to live life dangerously. A bald aircraft tire has a tendency to hydroplane on a wet runway.

Q: Do the tires come with the tube or does it need to be purchased separately?

Tubes are not included with the tires. They must be purchased separately.

Q: What does the 10 in the tire size 10/350-4 mean?

10" tire diameter, 3.50" width, and 4" diameter wheel.

Q: What would is the mounted dimension of the 5.00-5 Tire?

Approx 14" inflated diameter.
