I am looking for a new Bushtec tire, it is a 3 x 16,I have one new one, the original type. I tried the new ones from Bushtec and they lasted only 6000 miles. Does anyone know where to get one, or is there a better tire out there? thanks

I hope you have some luck, please post your search results. I have at least 6,000 miles on my old style Bushtec tires and they still look almost new. I measured the tread depth and they're worn 1mm from new.

I may have what you are look but it will be tonight before I can look at the tire. What I have came with a trailer I bought some time ago and I have since sold the trailer. It has never been mounted and is brand new. I will get the information off of it an take a picture.

Thanks,
Steve

I have a Bushtec Trailer tire I will sell. I used it for a spare. It's about 1/2 worn and is an original off my trailer. (sold the trailer, still have the tire). I'll try to get a picture of it today if anyone is interested.

I would NOT use the JC Whitney tires. They are much thinner and cheaply made. I have compared them side by side to a Bushtec and you can tell a big difference. My 2 cents. I believe the Bushtec tires are a 6 ply HD tire. That's what John told me when I bought new tires. My tire is $20 and actual shipping

Bash.

Of course some people have told me I can't and shouldn't use a car tire on my Wing too. But what the heck do I know?
