It is quickly coming to light that the wings, fuselage, landing gear are not the major weight components that a lot of weight can be saved. Guess making some quick EWAG total wheels, tires, brakes, with the 8:00×6:00 tires will weight about 24 pounds. Need to look here to save lots of weight, do not want to go with the small 4:00×6:00 tires but may have to. Will see as we progress.
those are 18 inch tires?
They are not quite 18″, about 16″. they are 8:00×6:00
they are about 15″ od, 8:00×6:00
