Aircraft Maintenance How To Tips
INSTALLING AIRCRAFT TIRES AND TUBES
FOR CESSNA - PIPER - BEECH - MOONEY AND MORE



Aircraft Tire - Red Dot A red dot on the tire identifies the light side of the tire.

Aircraft Tube - Yellow Line A yellow dot or line on the tube identifies the heavy side of the tube.

Install the tube in the tire and align these two marks.


Aircraft Tube - Valve StemIf no mark is found on the tube, the valve stem is used to align
with the red dot on the tire.

This will ensure that the tire and tube balance will be as close as possible before using the tire balancer and adding the necessary weight on the exterior of the wheel.
