Aircraft Tire Sizes

Mon May 13, 2002 7:42 am

Is there a list anywhere showing aircraft tire sizes?

I would have thought it would look something like this, from largest to smallest.

747
777
DC-10/L-1011
A330/340
767/A300
757
727
737
DC-9

I've never seen a 777, 747, or A340 (I assume it's the same size as the A330's tires) tire in person and on the ground, but the others I see regularly.

Is my list accurate, or am I way off?

DC10Tony, here is a link for you, it is in PDF and has more information than you ever wanted to know about aircraft Tyres/Tires, section 7.2 should be of most interest to you

That order is way incorrect

It's a little more like this:

B747
DC10
B777
Approx the same size
--------------------
B737 Next Gen Tires
--------------------
B767 Tires
--------------------
Md80 Tires
--------------------
B737 Classic
B757
Approx the same size
-------------------

Well, it also depends on the aircraft's owner.

I am not sure if any of you have seen it, but OuTkAsT own a G-V and they put some 21" rims on it with low-profile tires.

 Big thumbs up

just for fun I tried to find the cost of some of these Tyres/tires, no luck yet but I'm still looking

I did find it interesting that Goodyear listed the tyre/tire size for the SR-71, I would love to stick them on the Windstar but I don't think the wife would like them.
