If you are working in a line-maintenance environment, it may be sometimes difficult to determine if an aircraft tire is still serviceable or needs to be replaced immediately. Several factors are playing a role when you have to make decisions on the line. Commercial pressure, co-workers, part availability, personal situation within the company, aircraft crew which is pushing to depart as soon as possible, etc. To help you a little when you have questions or are in doubt if a damage on the tire is normal, exessive or acceptable, Michelin developed an APP which you can install on your smartphone. This free app has many examples and explanations about aircraft tires and different situations and damages which you may encounter.
