Mitas Aircraft tires
The segment of Mitas aircraft tires follows up on the long tradition of tires that dates back to the thirties of the last century. Under the Mitas brand three basic types of aircraft tires are being currently manufactured.
These are following: the tire with grooved guiding tread pattern (marked R – ribbed) which ensures stability of the aircraft and adhesion on a wet surface; next is the TC (twin contact) designed for steerable front wheels; and the third one is MX (mixed), a combination of both previous types. Mitas aircraft tires are designed to be used as first equipment (OEM) and for replacement market as well. The complete range of Mitas tires is available in the latest Mitas catalogue.
