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.

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.
