Here are the documents that Stephen was referring to. This is
supporting documentation for applying for a field approval for the
installation of 31" Desser Tundra tires on 10" Airframes Alaska
The report is an engineering report put together by myself,
Willie Stene, and reviewed by Doug Keller; both FAA DER's.
I would like to make this available for 180/185 owners to use as
supporting documentation for trying to get a field approval for
this combination. I have found this combination to work really
well for the heavier airplanes.
Let me know if you have any questions.
Thanks Arnold. Will ask Willie to send it to you and
appreciate the quick response!!

Field Approval on Club Website
Best place to
put it is in the Document Library and then create a post that
links to it. That provides a double hit. We can also add the
company that supplied the tires on our web page of a list of
companies that support our aircraft for a third hit.
To make it easy send me the docs and I will upload and send
you a link so you can create a forum post. Also send info
about the company.

Steve / Arnold,
A friend of mine went through the process of getting the
31” X 10” Desser tires field approved for his 185. He is
interested in sharing the information on the club website but
we are unsure of where the best place to post this would be.
I thought of the forums but since it could be similar to an
STC, had hoped that there may be another place to put it.
Could you help direct us?
Thanks in advance and hope all is well!!
