Tires
« on: September 05, 2014, 10:43:53 AM »
Hello!
I am owner Helio H-295 S/N 1423.
I need to change tires. My plane equiped with cross wind gear system. And now plane has 6.50x8 tires. But I would like to use bigger tires. Can you advise which type of tires are possible to use?
Thankful in advance!

Eugene,

Does "0994" represent  mark RA-0994G ?

 I looked in the parts catalog and only see 8:00 X 6.00 on both crosswind and fixed cleveland and goodyear.

Personally I had 8:50s on my fixed gear Helio without field approval (really not much bigger) just log book entry.

I'm not sure what you can field approve on the crosswind gear.

lots of people have 29" tundra tires with field approvals again don't know if you can use crosswind gear.

Included are the catalog pages

Hopefully someone will add to this.

Doug

7.00 X 8 are also approved by Equipment list and the old Aircraft Specs.

Yes! "0994" represents  mark RA-0994G. But it's not Helio number. It's my another plane - Diamond DA-20.

Thank you for information!
I understand I can't instal big tires on my plane because plane has 8" wheels. And I have intention to change 8" wheels to 6" wheels. Where and what 6" wheels can I buy?

Thankful in advance!
