Default New Tires

It's time to replace the tires on the mains of my RV-12. In going back through all of the forum comments that I could find, it looks like a good choice might be Desser retreads. I see that every post regarding these talks about using the 6 ply tires. Why? With such a light aircraft, I would think that 4 ply would be more than adequate.

Comments please..........Tom

I'll bet they're not Leakguards. With wheel pants, even when you cut the little access hole, Leakguards are a nice feature.

Default Tire sale

I called as well. It's goes into effect after midnight. You have to place the order online and once the tires are in the cart it will update with tubes and free shipping. Not a bad deal at all if your planning on replacing tires this year!

New RV-4 owner here and won't be home before this sale ends. Does anybody know if any of these tires will not fit with the Pressure Recovery wheel pants? Or in other words, which are the best ones that will fit?

Thanks.
