Am getting ready to put some new tires on, have always used Goodyear Flt Custom tires and tubes. Have read where the Michelin tube is recommended over the Goodyear as it holds air better because of different type rubber compound (does not leak down as fast over period of time). Does anyone have any experience / knowledge of the "Leakguard" tube from Desser tire company? I am looking for the best I can get based hopefully on someone else's experience and money. :D
PS - On the Desser site there is a link to 2004 test done by Aviation Consumer on acft tires which I found was interesting, not only in how they tested the tires but what the actual results were. Might be a surprise to some owners and helpful in your decision in what tire is right for you.
