WWII German Luftwaffe Bomber Tail Wheel Tyre


A WWII German Luftwaffe rear wheel tyre for a German Bomber. Its either for a Heinkel III or a Junckers 88.

The tyre has a white circle painted on either side to denote that the rubber contains graphite and is electroconductive. This allowed the plane to discharge static electricity that could have affected the planes equipment.

The tyre has moulded reference marks and size 560 x 200S (see pictures). The tyre was found in Normandy after the war, so presumably was a spare at an airfield.

Due to the weight of this item, international shipping will be expensive.

Size: 56 x 20cm
