Landing wheel prerotation often has been considered as a means of reducing tire wear, however a more careful study of the problem brings out other more important advantages, the most important of which is reduction of structural loads. The wheel prerotation described in this article has a number of features to insure reliability. Since adequate electrical prerotation has been achieved, it appears to be well worth consideration for use on very large aircraft with multiple landing wheels.
