    Interesting how the Tires compress that much, they looked quite revolting. What PSI are the tires rated and what PSI did you have on them?

    Trike standards and BCAR Section S do not require drop test more than limit load which usually is less than 12 inches height. Airplane standards actually ask that ultimate load drop test be done as well where things can bend but cannot break apart. That usually would work out to 24 inches height drop test. The more give in the suspension (including tires), the less peak shock loads are passed on to the frame making it easier to pass. Here is a video of ultimate load drop test at 1430 pounds gross weight for Searey amphibian. https://youtu.be/QlttOXKdxuM

    Damien, the tires were at 10 PSI during the test. those tires are made to run at 8-11 psi and are just awesome on rough terrain some people use them at just 5.5 PSI which is a little soft in my opinion but we have used them at 5.5. Their ability to suck up the bumps is remarkable. We are going to try and do a slow motion video of it landing on really bumpy ground. I was hoping the wheels would not bottom out during the drop test and they didn’t.

    Amazing how much the tires act as shock absorber
