AEROPLANES are now being built of from 25,000 to 60,000 lb. gross weight, and to comply with these loads it has been necessary to construct wheels and tyres capable of sustaining these machines when taking off with a minimum resistance and weight of structure. Complications arise from the provision of wheel brakes, which are an absolute essential on modern aircraft.
