10″ x 10″ Alaskan Bushwheel (ABI) Wheel Assembly
10″ x 10″ wheel is 16 pounds and made out of aluminum. Each wheel is sold individually.
For just a little more than the cost of the old-fashioned adapters, you get fully-tested aluminum wheel with all the wheel bearings, dust seals, and brake disks included. The machined surfaces of the wheels also fit better on Airhawk tires. And since you get everything new, you can sell or reuse your existing Cleveland wheels.
STC requires Piper and Husky aircraft with 1.25″ axles to use ABI-WBCK-P/H.
This wheel is most often purchased with or for 4-ply 29″ Airhawk tires or 6-ply 8.50x10s. This is a modern, significantly advanced version of the older glued adapter assembly available from “Alaska Tundra Tire,” formerly know as “Gar Aero.” Ask yourself whether you would feel comfortable gluing something critical onto your car tire. If the answer is no, then the 10×10 is your wheel.

The Alaskan Bushwheel is the ultimate Off Road Airplane tire. These enormous airbag type tires absorb large obstacles (like rocks) and simultaneously increase ground clearance for expensive things like propellers. These tires are designed for low pressure use by incorporating the valve in the side of the tire, thus preventing valve shear and flat tires when you choose to land in the middle of nowhere.

Requires Airglas Nose Fork. This setup offers a large prop clearance as well as great off airport landing capability. Depending on the aircraft an 8.50×6 on the nose may not be optimal for tail clearance and an 8.00×6 nose wheel is another great option. Double Puck brakes offer a large increase in stopping power and overall safety for heavier aircraft in short-field situations.
