Upgraded Design of our Deluxe Tailwheel

Your airplane is your baby. At Flyboy Accessories, we know the pride and hard work that goes into every part of your airplane, and we always do our best to make sure that the products on our store are of the caliber you would expect for something that you put on your flying machine.

That’s why we are always looking for ways to improve our products and searching¬†for better alternatives to what we have.

One of the products that has been with us almost since the very start of company is our Deluxe Tailwheel Tire. It’s been an incredibly reliable, durable tire and makes a nice upgrade to the cheap, heavy grease slinger that comes standard with the kit.

Most people say “if it isn’t broken, don’t fix it,” but we got to looking at our tire and found some things to improve. The standard tire design has bearings pressed almost all the way to the center of the tire, with spacer bushings to keep users from over-tightening and to take up space to reach the outside of the hub.

This is all fine and well but if stability is the name of the game, moving the bearings outboard is the right move, maximizing stability of the tire. We’ve engineered an improved bushing to accomplish this and to tighten the tolerances on the axle bolt, and this setup is now standard on all Deluxe Tires.
