Details

The Lightweight 10650 Wheel from Airframes Alaska offers a remarkable alternative to the original heavy-duty 10x650 wheel. Crafted from cast aluminum, this wheel retains exceptional strength and durability while shedding over 8 lbs. The front wheel half is stylized with a topo design and anodized gunmetal gray, and the rear wheel half is anodized black.

The Lightweight 10x650 wheel offers the same benefits as the original heavy-duty wheel at half the weight.

Piper and Husky aircraft require an axle spacer kit for installation on a 1.25" axle. This kit does not allow the use of a 1.25" wheel on a 1.5" Axle. 

Overview

The Original ABI 10x650 wheel was designed to accommodate the largest and heaviest 35" Alaskan Bushwheel tires used in rugged backcountry environments. This wheel offered exceptional durability and performance, but it came with a significant weight penalty. Now with the Lightweight 10x650, you can take all those advantages and slash the weight in half. 

The lightweight 10x650 offers significant value over other lightweight 10-inch wheels and the market. It comes in over 8 LBS lighter per set than the original ABI 10x650 wheel and over 7 LBS lighter than the Grove 10-inch wheel while maintaining the same weight as the Beringer 10-inch Wheel. 

The ABI Lightweight 10x650 is compatible with your existing brakes which poses yet another advantage over converting to the Beringer Wheels which require a metric conversion including replacing the Master Cylinder, Brake Calipers, Metric Brake Lines, and fittings, and requires an Axle taper kit. This leads to roughly double the cost for the same reduction in weight.

The ABI Lightweight 10x650 Wheel provides the optimal balance of weight reduction and durability to create the Alaskan-tested and proven 10-inch wheel for navigating backcountry terrains.
