Aircraft landing systems that set the standard for rugged environments. That’s what the Alaskan Bushwheel brand means. SportairUSA offers the full line of Alaskan Bushwheel products, including tires, wheels, tailwheels, brakes, landing gear upgrades and more.
Alaskan Bushwheels™ are designed for use in off-field and backcountry operations. Larger and softer, they provide increased ground and prop clearance, and maximum shock absorption.
Alaskan Bushwheels are a unique tire designed for use on light aircraft. These tires are handcrafted onto airbags, have a sidewall valve-stem, and fit standard 6.00 x 6” wheels. The air pressure in bushwheels can be lowered for rough-ground usage and the pilot does not have to worry about tire slippage and stem shearing.

- 26”x12”x6” —- 26lbs
