Alaska Tundra Tires / Floats Alaska / Seaplanes North / Gar Aero / Whatever
Servicing one of the Gar Aero tailwheels and have a weatherchecked tire that I would like to replace. Dude at (see above business name) sez the 4.00 x 4 6 ply Cheng Shin tire they used in the past is no longer available; they are now using a 4.00 x 4 8 ply glider main tire that is too tall for the older forks. Must buy a new fork for 300 $ and a new tire.
Anyone have a source of a tire that will work on the older fork?
I'm still surfing the web, found some that are close, thought someone may have been there already.
The field approval does not specify tire size, and the whole installation was non-pma parts anyway (for the legal eagles out there). Over the years, Gar Aero/Gra Aero used several different tires.
