Overview

The ABI 10x10 has redefined reliability and performance in the aviation industry. This innovative product is preferred among aircraft owners looking for top-tier quality for their 29" Airhawk tires or 8.50x10s with 4 or 6 plies. Notably, the ABI 10x10 Wheel Assembly is a substantial improvement over the older Gar Aero adapter.

The Gar Aero adapter, developed in the early 1990s, allowed mounting a 29-inch Airhawk tire on a 10-inch wheel. This adapter consisted of two aluminum plates bonded with epoxy, featuring a lip fitting into the wheel and a beadlock ring to secure the tire. While it served as a crucial solution for aircraft using Airhawk tires, it had limitations. Firstly, being a bonded assembly, it proved challenging to remove and replace when needed. Secondly, the adapter could flex under heavy loads, resulting in unwanted vibration and tire wear. Lastly, compatibility issues with some 10-inch wheels posed additional challenges.

In contrast, the ABI 10x10 Wheel Assembly offers several significant advantages. This bolt-on assembly simplifies removal and replacement, eliminating the difficulties associated with bonded assemblies. The ABI wheel's superior stiffness reduces vibration and minimizes tire wear, improving overall performance and safety.
