The Bombardier CRJ 700 and Bombardier CRJ 900 are the middle sized airliners in the Bombardier CRJ family. Introduced to service in 2001, the CRJ700 seats up to 78 passengers and competes directly with the Embraer 170 which normally seats around 72 passengers.
The CRJ900 is a stretched variant of the CRJ700 and seats up to 90 passengers.
Dunlop supplies CRJ 700 and CRJ 900 tires from all its global sites and through a network of distributors. Dunlop equips the fleet with H36x12.0-18 main tires and 20.5x6.75-10 nose tires.
The Dunlop nose tire features a chine which is used to direct water spray away from the engines and both the Dunlop nose and main gear tires for the CRJ 700 and 900 airplanes are known as robust, reliable and retreadable.
Dunlop Aircraft Tyres also markets a one retread life main gear tire for the CRJ 700 and CRJ 900. The tire has deeper tread depth to increase the intervals between aircraft tire changes though at the expense of the number of retread lives the tire can endure.
