Question: Do I need to jack up the entire plane (jack under each wing and tail support) to pull and replace the left main tire? -OR- Can I use one jack under the left wing and raise the left main tire off the ground enough to get the tire changed? 2nd Question: Anyone know how much vertical lift a jack has to have to clear the tires w/o deflating the struts.
3rd Question: How are these tire & wheel assemblies balanced once the new tire is installed? - OR - is balance normally an issue? Thanks!!
