Default Its time to train some help

Its a great day when your son is old enough to understand bucking rivets and still small enough to fit in the tight spots.[IMG][/IMG]

Default Wheel Pants

Guys:

A bit of an unusual question.
I would like to use RV wheel pants on a different plane. So my question is:
What size tires will fit an RV-6 wheel pant and an RV-10 wheel pant?
I would like to use two different tires: 6.00 x 6 and 15 x 6.00 x 6
What would you recommend?

Thank you,
Barry

You can reply direct.

Barry, the -10 has 600 X 6 mains and a 500 X 5 nosewheel. However, the mains are an unusual, low profile tire, but the main wheelpants ' might' fit your application.

Bear in mind that Van places the wheelpants on the RV's much lower than you normally see, so you can probably mount the mains on a standard 600 X 6 a little higher than we do on RV's.

Best,

The mains for an RV-10 are 15X6.0X6, which is much smaller than the 600X6. As Pierre stated, there is a slight possibility that a standard 600X6 could fit, but I doubt it very much.
