Tyre brands used on Russian, what a question! Knowing how things in Russia operate, the brand name is most likely something like Aviakolec (trans: Aircraft tyre), or else there is no brand name at all, being produced by the military industrial complex. The tyres used on Russian aircraft must be unique as the planes themselves are designed to land and take off on both concrete runways and unprepared surfaces, such as gravel, or packed dirt. I don't think Michelin or BFGoodrich would be up to the task, though I can't be sure.
