Product Description

Desser Tire & Rubber Co., Monster Retread

Flight school tested, longest lasting retread with incredible wear for heavy use aircraft

The Desser Tire & Rubber Co.,Inc., “Monster” retread is a type III , nylon bias tube type tire for general aviation, with the deepest tread depth of any general aviation tire. The “Monster” retread uses top quality carcasses only.  Every tire goes through rigorous NDT & final quality checks. The tire is factory balanced to new standards. Tread rubber is compounded exclusively for long life, with excellent wear characteristics. The “Monster” series has more tread depth than all general aviation tires in like sizes, and this gives the owner/operator less tire maintenance and more life on the wheel than any other tire.  “Monster” retreads have a speed rating of 120 & 160 MPH.

  • Deeper tread depth
  • Wide channel tread grooves
  • Optimized tread compound


  • More landings, less maintenance cost
  • Large footprint, excellent wet traction
  • Extremely long wearing tire life

The “MONSTER” retread was developed specifically for the high-cycle, touch n' go environment. No other new or retread tire can match the extended wear performance of this tire. Here’s why:

“MONSTER” retread has almost 10/32” tread depth.

Most new tires average 6/32” of tread depth. The “MONSTER” 5.00-5has at least 30% more tread life than new tires. 

“MONSTER” retread has 67 durometer tread hardness.
New tires generally fall into a range of 59 to 65 durometer hardness on the tread rubber. The “MONSTER” tread rubber was developed to be the longest wearing compound for any general aviation tire. PERIOD

We do sell less expensive tires than the “MONSTER”, but if you want to save yourself maintenance costs with less tire changes,  more cycles on your tires, this is your TIRE. Expect at least 40% more life with this tire. This tire is speciafically tailored to high cycle users.



  • Size: 500-5

  1. Monster Retreads Rock 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th Jul 2015

    I just ordered my second set of Desser Monster retreads for my Vans RV9. My first set of tires, from the factory, only lasted 150 hours before they were showing bare spots and cords. The Monsters have over 500 hours with hundreds of landings and they still have some tread left. The majority of my landings are on paved surface.
    My complements to Desser for making a great product at an affordable price.
