The popular Bombardier CRJ 100 and CRJ 200 range of jet airliners entered service in 1992. Though the CRJ 100 and CRJ 200 are both now out of production, the type remains in service with many airlines around the world.
The aircraft was initially based on a business jet and the CRJ200 is very similar to the CRJ 100 except for an engine which is more efficient.
The CRJ 100 and 200 were the basis for the stretched CRJ 700, 900 and ultimately the even more stretched CRJ 1000.
The Dunlop H29x9.0-15 (DR27921T) tyre is used on the main gear and the Dunlop 18x4.4 (DR15112T) is used on the nose gear of the airplane. Both tires can be retreaded and offer a good balance of landings, retread life and durability.
Like the nose tire used on the larger Bombardier CRJ 700, CRJ 900 and CRJ 1000; the Dunlop 18x4.4 aircraft nose tire features a chine which keeps water spray from the twin nose tires away from the engines which are mounted on the fuselage towards the rear of the aircraft.
