Al,
This is the product of a simple, quick Google search:

STCs for 8.50 X 6 tires and 180 hp Lyc.

Cooper's Landing Stinson LLC
Gerald W. Cooper
PO Box 2312
Pasco, WA 99302

509-947-3168

Gerald Cooper has spent time at the Stinson ISC table for several years at Oshkosh.
I know a lot of folks think the big tires are just the Berries...I personally have no desire for them. The Stock 7:00 X 6 have served me well for nearly 49 years on grass, mud, gravel, and pavement.

Thanks Larry... I had uncovered that information by several other routes, but all the dates were pretty old. I guess my question should have been "Does Gerald Cooper still hold the STC for 8.50 tires..." I have a pair of 8.50x6 for the Zenith I'm building, and put them up against the Stinson - I'd probably need a mounting block to get in the aeroplane and a periscope to see where I'm going....

I have the STC for the 8.5 tires, I'll take a look this evening. I think Cooper sold them recently.

No I don't currently run 8.5 tires, but since there was a group buy some time ago, I decided to add it in case it might be useful.

Stan Bedford used to hold the alternator STC, but he sold it and the new owner seems to have "disappeared".

Cooper's information is correct as far as the information I have on the 8.5-6 tire STC.

That was as of Nov 2012.

I was in the group buy. which I think was 150.00 for the STC. Still, if that was 1/2 price, 300 isn't too bad.
