DJM Manufacturing makes this lightweight alternative (25 ounces) to the much heavier Van’s tail wheel tire and hub (41ounces!). Precision sealed bearings eliminate any grease slinging onto the bottom of your rudder and keep the hub much more resistant to dirt accumulation. Not to mention, you save a full pound of weight.


  • 6061-t6 aircraft aluminum hub
  • 65 durometer SBR rubber tire
  • 5-1/2″ Diameter X 1-1/2″ wide at tread
  • Hub width: 2.1″
  • 3/8″ axle
  • Fits all Van’s, Screaming Eagle and Bell tailwheels with 3/8″ axle (1/2″ axle size available by special order)
  • Weighs only 25 ounces
  • Looks great!

I liked this new lightweight tail wheel so much that
I added the upgraded fork as well along with the stainless steel axel. Not only does it look great ,my RV7 taxis better and the takeoff roll seems more stable.
