<p>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.</p>
Rationale: This limited scope revision adds appearance anomaly guidelines for abrasion in the lower sidewall of newly retreaded tires caused by contact with the wheel flanges during previous usage on aircraft. The new information is shown in Paragraph 4, Table 1 and Paragraph 5.2.
