I got a 6 ply running about 40 psi and that seems firm. Time will
72 PSI sounds quite high Bruce.

I think it is 4 ply. It’s the same tire that fits on the tail
wheel of the Mail.

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
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!
