Default And...

I decided to build using the Desser retreads. Using them on training aircraft for many years, they outlast the name brands by nearly two to one and they are a fraction of the cost. Yes, they are a bit larger but as I am fitting my wheel pants for the larger tire, I can always use a smaller one. Conversely, trimming the pants for the smaller tires creates an issue if you want to go to retreads later...
