This SAE Aerospace Standard (AS) sets forth criteria for the selection and verification processes to be followed in providing tires that will be suitable for intended use on civil aircraft. This document encompasses new and requalified radial and bias aircraft tires.
Per the current version of AS4833, LST loads are currently not considered when determining the load capability requirements the tires must meet. An increasing number of aircraft have sustained takeoff loads which are significantly higher than the max static loads. This revision will add LST conditions to the load cases to be considered when selecting tires.
