A stretched version of the Bombardier Dash 8 300; the Dash 8 400 series of the popular Dash 8 turboprop platform has become a popular and economic turboprop airliner. It can seat up to 90 passengers in high density configuration but typically seats fewer.
The Dash 8 400 airframe, which was stretched by nearly 7 metres over the Dash 8 300 airframe is bigger, heavier and faster than the 300 series. And it is comfortable too.
Consequently, the main gear tires for the Bombardier Dash 8 400 are uprated compared to its smaller siblings. A 34x10.75-16 (DR0231T) main landing gear tire supports the increased load and the faster speed. The tire is rated to 210mph which is faster than the tires for the Dash 8 300. Nose landing gear duty is carried out by a 22x6.50-10 tire which, whilst nominally is of the same tire size as that of the Bombardier Dash 8 300, is also rated to the faster speed of the 400 series airplane.
Both tires for the Bombardier Dash 8 400 airplane are retreaded by all Dunlop facilities and offer compelling economics and performance.
