Arrived on time as described
Installed easily and was nicely coated with talcum.
Seriously overpriced, but canâ€™t roll with a flat tire. Had to pay it. Product is OK. What can you say about an inner tube?
Aero Classic makes a standard tube and a leakguard tube. I have seen quite a few problems with their standard tubes but I have never seen one with the leakguard tube. I just looked at my quick books program and in the last 10 years I have installed 24 of the 6.00-6 leakguard inner tubes and 8 of the 5.00-5 tubes. I have never had an inner tube failure on a clients airplane. My advice is to make sure you are buying a Leakguard inner tube and avoid their standard tubes.
Saw the low rating, thought Id add my 2 cents. We have run these (6.00-6) for many years in 3 Cessna 185 amphibs and have had fantastic service from them. We take them out of service when the tire is worn out, probably 600 hours or so, and have only seen one failure at a valve stem. I certainly understand the frustration of others poor experience but ours has been great. I recommend these to all the folks we deal with.
These tubes rock. I put them on my Comp Air 6 and I havent had to add any air in a year. Most other tubes you have to top off about every three months. As it says in the instructions, recheck pressure the next day after initial installation because the air trapped between the tire and tube will bleed off. After that they just dont leak. Well worth the slight extra cost over standard tubes.
Not much I can really say, its an inner tube. It fit without issue, was well packaged and I hope it will give me at least 7 years of service like the last one. The construction seems to be much thicker than my old one so that should help.
Purchased these retread tires for a 182 RG. The Cessna manual specifically warns against using retreads due to potential fouling in the gear wells. The owner and a well know managed maintenance company still wanted to try them. Both tires rubbed on the gear well lips and about 1/4 inch had to be trimmed to make adequate clearance. On fixed gear planes the value of retreads is good and they provide long service life, however be sure to check for adequate clearance when using them on retractable gear airplanes.
I run an MRO and have used these tubes for years without problems until this month. I too experienced the pinhole in the side wall. I think that low air pressure could contribute to this problem along with not using enough talc when installing. We have literally installed 100s of these over the years and have only seen a few failures.
The TR-67 valve stem on this tube does not have a straight 90 degree bend like the old one with the same part number had. It has a radius bend before the straight part that come through the grommet in the wheel. This extra bend causes the stem to put stress on the grommet which, I suspect, will cause it to wear prematurely. I attempted to contact product support regarding this and left several messages, but no one ever returned my calls.
There is no difference between 6.00x6 and 600x6. It is two different ways of saying the same thing. A 600x6 tube will fit a 6.00x6 tire and vice versa.
Tube # 06-00755 will have the TR-67A bent valve stem.
Yes, STR in the stem type column indicates straight.
Yes, they are approved for use on certified aircraft.
This cross references to Spruce part# 06-00754.
The first number before the "x" indicates the tire's height or diameter when inflated and not under load. The middle number, that is the digits between the "x" and the "-," indicates the tire's width. So, the 15 x 600-6 specifically calls out the height as 15 inches. The standard 600-6 will be taller.
Tube part number 06-08102
Yes, a 600-6 tube fits a 15-600x6 tire.
