Scale AirWheels are designed to safely absorb the shock associated with landing large or heavy model airplanes. Available in two styles, Scale Treaded AirWheels sport a modern appearance with longitudinally grooved tires. Scale Balloon AirWheels give a more vintage appearance with smooth tires. If desired, the two-piece hub allows for hidden installation of the wheel collars. Tires inflate using a bicycle pump to a maximum of 1 bar (14 psi).
Both include high quality Delrin® adapters for 3/16" axles (can easily be drilled to 5 mm) and Delrin® adapters for 6 mm axles (can easily be drilled to 1/4"). For the rare occasion that ball bearings are needed, Scale AirWheels are available with ball bearings for 6 mm axles (adds 5 g to the weight).
