This document is for establishing and addressing anomalies on appearance of new and newly retreaded tires prior to installation on aircraft. It is intended to use cosmetics as well as functionality to make a determination of acceptability. However, if cosmetic appearance is not a requirement, use the inspection criteria from ARP6225, Aircraft Tire Removal Criteria. This ARP does not supersede (E)TSO-C62 minimum requirements including marking requirements.
A need exists to guide those receiving new and newly retreaded tires as to what appearance anomalies are acceptable and what appearance anomalies are not. This document does not address in service inspection, which is handled in ARP6225.
