    Need a decent to new set of 31" Bushwheels!!

    Order a new set of Heavy Tread 31" Bushwheels 4 weeks ago. Got an email weeks ago that tires would ship 3-4 weeks from order.. Today I get another Email telling me it will now be 12-14 ADDITIONAL WEEKS to ship..
    I'm pretty much grounded unless I slap on a set of old 8.50s I have sitting around.
    If anyone has a set they might be willing to part with, you can chime in here or give me a call 269-929-6456 Thanks!!

    Airframes is having a blem sale on Bushwheels on Saturday May 7 at their open
    house in Palmer in conjunction with the Alaska Airman’s trade show. First come first served. 20% off unblemished pricing. Supplies are limited. Know anyone in Anchorage that can buy you a set and ship em to you?
    See their website for this same info. It’s a thought.

    Might be time to have a look at Desser tires Aero Classic smooth tundra tires also. Only downside there I think they use a 10” wheel. Upside is their tires are tougher, can handle pavement better, and cost half as much. More options.

    Hey Bob, I hope you are well! I just got a set of 8.50 4ply smoothies within a couple of days delivered from Aircraft spruce for my 180. I'm not sure if they are the same as Dessers - they are Aircraft Specialty tires - but they are 22" smooth, tubed tundra tires for a 6" wheel. Probly better than an old set of 8.50s that are worn out.

    I’ve got a set that I bought used and will not be able to use any time soon. I can sell them to you for what I paid (I’ll have to dig through my records and see what that was). They’re used, and have a partially worn through coat of bedliner applied. One has a patch where it goes on the wheel, I guess the previous owner put air in them before mounting them.

    Ill have a set after I'm back from AK the first of July. bought new and have run Herculiner on them all the time since new. New in 2017 and hangered all of the time. Added 2 coats to them before I leave for the north.
    Showing some cracking of the tire around the area the valve stem comes out.
    DOug

    Or I could swap out before I go and sell these?
