Tundra Tires - Aero Classic 27.5"

Postby FlyerChief » Thu Dec 21, 2017 5:30 pm

While looking at the Desser Tire website today, I noticed that they have redesigned their website to search by aircraft or tire size. Unfortunately, neither method will allow you to find our Highlanders, SuperStols, or even a Kitfox on their website. I was able to find them by searching "tundra" on their search bar tool. I have shown the link to the tires for anyone interested. These tires fit the 8" rims on Kitfoxes and optional 8" Matco rims on the Highlander, so I assume the same is likely available for the SuperStol too, but probably would have to be ordered at the time of purchase instead of the 6" rims.
I installed a pair of these a couple of years ago and think they are a great tire and a reasonable priced option to the Airstreak Alaska Bush Wheels that only fit the 6" rims. They are the only smooth tires I have personally seen that have wear indicators on them too. Mine appear to have a decade of wear left, but time will tell.

Here's the link to them at Aircraft Spruce: http://www.aircraftspruce.com/catalog/lgpages/desseraa4ak.php

Looks like shipping to the lower 48 states is free from both Desser and Aircraft Spruce.

If just enough is really good, then too much ought to be perfect.

PS: I laugh about it now, but it wasn't too long ago... about 5 years... that the Canadian dollar was 10% higher than the US greenback.
Fortunately, I'm not trying to buy a Highlander and Rotax engine right now!!! I'm certain that Just Aircraft sales in Canada have declined because of it.
