Default Big wheels

The wheels are Matco W60 , the brake rotor attaches to the rim with three Allen
Screws. The caliper runs on the inside portion of the rotor and attaches to the
Rim at max diameter. The bearings are for a 1.25 axel and 1420 pounds per
Wheel.
I flew to HYS and appeared to be approx 5kts slower compared to no wheelpant 500-5. But still cross country at 160 kts But the landing opportunities now are endless. The 500-5 only came to the top of the rim.
I broke the last wheelpant when I taxied into a cone, so I have been without
For quite awhile . I live near KMCW and with all the farm fields around the landing opportunities are endless and it looks good
I Just Gotta Be Different
