My Legacy is a fixed gear so no problem if the tire doesn’t hit the top of the yoke.  I put retreads on the mains last year and I am really pleased with them but I don’t think that I saw retreads of the size I need for the front tire.  I remember it to be 11 X 4.00-5.

What size was your front tire?

I put a reTread, Dressler on my nose recently.  I have been happy with it.  It is a smidge taller.  ReTreads are supposed to have a longer tread life and are about half as much.  I did purchase a new tube.  Remember that after changing the tube and tire it will take a few weeks for the tube to settle into the new tire.  That means it will take tire pressure checks and top offs during this period.


Also, I am not sure how a slightly taller retread will work in your retractable gear airplane.
