Parkzone T-28 Wheel Upgrade...

I have a new T-28 on order and because I fly off of grass I decided to get some 2.5" dubro light treaded wheels....

I notice the axle holes are 5/32"....are these going to be ok on this plane? Will I need collars as whell or is the stock retaining method re-usable?

thanks!

I upgraded my T-28 by putting the wheels from the PZ P-47 on it. The standard nuts that came with the T-28 cracked so I just took the landing gear to the LHS and bought some nuts from there. I like it much better with bigger wheels on it.

Did you replace all three wheels or just the two rear?

I used all wheels the same size with 5/32 brass tubing in the wheel hole and over the wire.

I replaced only the front wheel with the P-47 wheel and it has not nosed over since. To me, doing just the rear wheels I would think would make it worse. Replacing all three may help a little (and look better). But imo replacing just the front wheel, without a doubt, will help the most.

How large are the P-47 wheels... are 2.5 or bigger?

If you are flying from grass, you want large diameter but thin wheels. The DuBro will be better than the PZ P-47 wheels. If you are flying from dirt, sand or gravel, the wide P-47 wheels will be better.
