Default Tires

I bought the desser Rv-10 kit...with the retreads.
I have used retreads on flight school aircraft and am convinced of their durability. I also followed the logic of fitting the wheel pants to the retreads first because they are slightly larger; if I wanted to put new tires on at Walter time I would be able to. Fitting the new tires which are smaller first, makes using retreads at a later date problematic.
I am happy with the outcome...

I will go ahead and give Dresser a call and talk with them on which tires.

See all kinds of stuff on the forum for which tires and working through that information to make a decision


Be sure when you call for the set that you tell them you want Goodyear retread tires. - yes I have used them for 4 years and they outlast the vans 2X and work really well with no shakes that I had with aeroclassics (aka they appear really well balanced)
