Default Tires

Just had a blowout and need to replace tires and tubes. The originals are 15x600-6 but acs shows the 600-6 to be larger? Which tires are being used to replace? Original is Airtrac.

I've used the Desser 15/600-6 6 RT RETREADs as quoted in other posts. Much better life than the original tires.

Default Desser

I use desser retreads. They are larger than new tires...

Default Wilkerson tires

I used a few desser retreads and finally settled for Wilkerson tires. Less expensive and to date far more balanced and better tires than any monster previously used.
Family owned and great to work with.
If you canít tell. Highly recommend.

Ordered Michelin airstop from desser but see they are not 90 deg valve stems, they say only aero classic has the 90 deg stem for mains. Anyone found other 15x600-6 tubes with the angled stem?

Do you have to remove wheel pants to check or add air?
