Serious version: Im replacing an old nose wheel with the exact same tire - so that should tell you Im OK with it. As far as the old one, time is every tires enemy. The Air Hawk I am replacing came with the aircraft, and I have had it for three years. Am guessing that old tire has plenty more on it, but havent flipped through the logbook to determine how many more. The old one has good tread, but its starting to dry rot. Comical version: These items are round and composed of rubber. This is one of three used by my aircraft. You put them on the round metal surface under your airplane. Mine are inflated to 26 PSI. When you go to take off or land or even taxi, they are placed against the ground. As the aircraft moves on the ground, these spin against the surface to allow movement of the aircraft on the ground. When transitioning the aircraft from the sky back onto the terra firma, these again spin against the surface and may provide some assistance in cushioning the aircraft during this phase of flight. I really dig em.
Got tire, good service from Spruce !!
The tires were priced right and arrived the next day, with free shipping (to N/W PA). After cleaning and repacking the wheel bearings, the tires mounted easily. Waited overnight to recheck air pressures, all was good. Reinstalled onto the airplane, made the required logbook entry and went flying. Now, I find myself taking extra precautions to make greaser landings just to keep the new rubber where it belongs (not on some strip of pavement!). Thanks Aircraft Spruce for a great experience!
Received both items (tire & tube) two days before guaranteed date.
Black and Round. I like it.
Everything I ordered correct and delivered on time.
Great tire at a great price.
My A&P put a pair of these on my mains last year, they have been fine. Recently my nose tire developed a shake and we discovered that the tire was quite out of round. I installed an air hawk myself and have been pleased, smooth and vibration free from the start.
Only the best for the nose wheel.
Yes, this tire will require a tube. The recommended Goodyear tube to use with this tire is part number 06-05000.
The ply rating branded on a tire's sidewall helps identify how much load the tire is designed to carry at its industry specified pressure. Different aircraft require different ply ratings based on the weights. You will need to review the application chart to determine which ply rating you require for your aircraft.
Yes, 06-00755 would be a great tube for tire # 06-07710.
The weight of this tire is 37.3 lbs.
This has a speed rating of 120mph.
The "Type" column is just the brand. You can use any of the 500-5 tubes listed in the Accessories tab with any of the 500-5 tires listed in the chart. So the answer to your question is that tubes are interchangeable and you can use any tube with any tire as long as the sizes are the same.
