i tried the desser retreads and had them wear abnormally and also had a shimmy on landing around 35-40 kts and the clearance between the wheel fairings was very little. i went with flight customs and so far minimal landing shimmy. time will tell on how they wear but i won't go back to the retreads.

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...

Default Desser retreads from the git-go

Did you go with their High-performance or Monster?
