corvette33 Posted June 30, 2016 Report Share Posted June 30, 2016 I have a 2007 CTSW, with Matco wheels and brakes. Over the last year or two I have had several flat tires. Twice on the nose wheel and a total of three on the mains. (my landings are not that bad !!) . The aircraft has been serviced by two FBO's ,one a LSA dealer and service center and one a long time established service department. In all cases it has been a tube failure. Usually a small hole. Inspection of the wheels show no issues. I am starting to question the quality of the tubes. Has anyone had a similar issue and has found a tube which seems to stand up better than another? So far we have been lucky and none the flat tires have occurred during landing .We started to run a little higher air pressure (30 psi) but will still had a failure. Any thoughts or suggestions???
