• The Biplane Forum is a large global active community of biplane builders, owners and pilots. From Pitts to Skybolts, to older barnstormers, all types are welcome. In addition to our active community, our content boasts exhaustive technical information which is often sought after for projects and maintenance. This information has accumulated over the 12+ years the forum has been in existence.

    The Biplane Forum is a private community. Subscriptions are only $49.99/year or $6.99/month to gain access to this great community and unmatched source of information not found anywhere else on the web. We are also a great resource for non biplane users, since many GA aircraft are built the same way (fabric and tube construction). Annual membership also comes with two BiplaneForum.com decals.

My plane uses an 8" smooth contour tire for the tailwheel. I bought a new tire and tube at a cost of about $180. I hope not to buy too many at that price. I bought an old tailwheel for the tire to havea spare.
The older tire doesn't show any weather checking but just seems a little hard/dry. What kind of methods/products are out there i might use on it?Edited by: bigblackmastiff
