Default Beringer wheel O-ring??

Trying to order spare o-rings for my -14A Beringer wheels. Can't figure out which ones to order on the Spruce website which says the following:

"Important note: The KDF series are for non-certified aircraft and older Beringer wheels in three parts. New Beringer wheels are 2 parts, and need only one O-ring of the J-JTR series. EASA Form 1 is available if required for J-JTR series only, at an additional charge of $10 per document."

The KDF rings are $17.50 ea. The J-JTR rings are $20 for pack of 10 ($2 ea).

My wheels are two parts. I've spent way too much time trying to figure this out.
Any help???

Thanks,
Jim

The Beringer manual lists kdf-01 for 5 inch wheels. I tried unsuccessfully to copy a section from the manual. Sorry.

I ordered directly from Beringer last Nov and they sent J-JTR-006N O rings and they were $3.48 each. They fit just fine. The shipping was a bit steep at $19.42 but I wanted to be sure I got the correct rings.

Do you have 5 inch or 6 inch wheels? I have not removed a tire, yet, but assumed from the Beringer maintenance manual I would need the larger $17 o-ring.

Default O-Rings

I ordered the J-JTR-006N pack of 6 from ACS Part # 06-01994. Although I have not installed them took this part number off install documents. It is a little confusing.

Are these the large 118 mm o-rings? I have not replaced a tire, so please forgive my ignorance, but I understand from the Beringer manual that two 118 mm o-rings are required, and I believe those o-rings are available from ACS for $17 each. I would like to acquire the correct o-rings in advance and I am confused which to order.
