Why use aircraft tires vs. truck or car tires?

  • Truck tires, and in particular, car tires offer a low ply rating. Typically, truck and car tires will have a 6 to 12 ply rating in the tread and half the plies in the sidewall. An aircraft tire runs double, triple or even quadruple the ply rating bead to bead.
  • Truck and car tires are comprised mostly of synthetic rubber compounds which become easily weathered and break down structurally when extreme amounts of pressure are applied.
  •  Aircraft tires are the best structurally engineered tires in the world, with­standing pressure 100 times that of a car or truck tire. Aircraft tires are made from natural rubber and are much less susceptible to weathering, thus providing a greater life expectancy and keeping your equipement protected longer.
  • On average an aircraft tire will outlast truck and car tires 10 to 1. As a result, your equipment's protection time is lengthened by the same ratio.
  • Aircrafttires offer a complete uniform apperance unlike the varied tread designs of car and truck tires. Your equipment looks better.
  • An aircraft tire is designed to carry same load as an earthmover while running at the speed of a Formula 1 racer!! On take-off, for a short period, it has to resist a speed of around 360 kph while carrying a weight that sometimes exceeds 30 tonnes per tire. The temperature variations are just as extreme. At the end of a landing, its temperature may exceed 100 °C whereas, shortly before, in the hold, it was at a temperature of -45° C.
