Federal supply group 26 consists of tires and tubes for aircraft and non-aircraft. This extremely active supply group contains manufactures such as: Michelin, Goodyear, Dunlop, and Bridgestone. The group is further broken down into the following Federal supply classes: 2610 tires and tubes, pneumatic, except aircraft; 2620 tires and tubes, pneumatic, aircraft; 2630 tires, solid and cushion; 2640 tire rebuilding and tire and tube repair materials. Aircraft tires are very like vehicle tires in build but they operate at much higher pressure. They also have a shorter lifespan due to the high velocity impacts during a landing.
A typical tire will last for 10-200 landings before they are retreaded (rather than replaced). The tire itself will not be replaced until the core is worn out since a single tire replacement on a commercial jumbo jet runs around $90,000. Some examples of equipment in federal supply class 2640: tread gum, cold patches, friction cord fabric, vulcanizing patches, padding stock, tire and tube repair kits, valves, and valve cores.
