Hard To Find

Many vintage as well as many not so vintage aircraft do encounter problems in locating the original tyres and tubes. Where possible long term storage of such sizes are carried for future use and in some cases we are able to offer suitable alternatives. Tail wheel tyres can often be the most difficult items to locate, however, smooth, ribbed, saw tooth, channel and twin contact designs remain available in certain sizes.

The standard ribbed tread pattern of the aircraft tyre has been altered for various applications over the years and some of the more unusual include the Dimple design for use on tundra and the block tread used on many Spitfires.

Metric sizes are widely used for many continental aircraft including Rallyes, Jodels, Robins and Yaks.

Below are some of the more unusual tread types
