I am using the McReary AirTrac. Only problem I have had with it
is when I didn’t keep the psi up (I use 72 psi). I landed at
Asheville and the strip has little triangles in the middle of the
runway that were quite high. It damaged my sidewalls and let me
fly it a few more hours before it went flat on Landing. The side
walls had sharp protrusions opposite each other and eventually
rubbed a hole in the side of the tube .

I am using the “lamb” tire (11” on 5
inch rim), same as the original mains. I had intended to
have the same tires all around on mine, so I could carry
one spare. I ended up changing my mains to 5.00 X 5
AirHawk tires, but kept the lamb up front. You will not
be able to use this unless you have the upgraded gear
leg ala Scott Swing or Richard Kaczmarek.
Interested in what front tyre people
are using on the Tri gear.
Mine currently has a 10x 3.50 x 4 McReary Airtrac (https://www.lasaero.com/products/article/W006S408F)
which is quite square in profile and I was thinking to
swap it for a more rounded (like main tyres). Aircraft
hasn’t flown yet… Tyre is just old so needs replacement.
Might replace with Aero classic 10/350-4 (https://www.aircraftspruce.com/catalog/lgpages/aero_rib_10_350_460.php)
Or keep the McReary…
Any experience and advice appreciated!
