Desser is proud to introduce the latest in its line of “Tundra” tires, the 31/11.00-10 4 ply Bigfoot. The 31 “Bigfoot is a fully FAA-approved and TSO’ed tire. Weighing in at a lightweight 20 lbs, it can be used on most 10” wheels, including wheels with the GAR-Aero, 6” to 10” adapters, provided by Seaplanes North. Alaskan Bushwheel, Matco and Cleveland also have wheels which can be used on this tire. A new lightweight wheel, disc and brake will be introduced shortly which can used in the experimental and then the TC markets. The 31” bigfoot features all the qualities of a true aircraft tire, with a full carcass buildup, strong nylon belting, durable, yet flexible sidewalls, and long wearing tread compounds which can be used on concrete and asphalt without worrying about damaging or prematurely wearing out the tire. It has a specially designed tread compound, which is made to stand up to long taxi cycles in the dead of summer without any adverse effects on wear.

In addition to the great value price, the tire can be used in either a tube type or tubeless wheel application, and is rated at a max load of 2235 lbs. each, at 20 PSI, with a full speed rating of 120 mph.
Introductory price of 895.00 makes this tire one of the best values in aircraft Tundra tires.

Here is what people are saying about them:

"Great clearance and comparable to the 31" Alaska Bushwheel clearance"

"Taller than the 29" Airhawk and 29" Alaska Bushwheel"

"Ran at 12psi initially on my C180, great deflection. Ran at 10psi on my C185, excellent tire."

"No observed change in speed between the 29", 31" Bushwheel and 31" Desser Tire"

"Have a sturdy sidewall and feel to them. Holding up great on pavement."

"Priced at better price point than the 31" or 29" Alaska Bushwheel, and better looking and lighter."

"At +/- $850 per tire + tubes, a great factor when compared to the +/- $1750 per tire for a 31" AK Bushwheel"

"Tires perform well in the following conditions:
*Gravel & Grass Strips
*Gravel Bars
*Sand Bars & Beaches
*Grass Flats" [ home ]
