I have been providing an attachment point on the end of my axles with a 6-32 tapped hole from the first run forward. Supporting the outside of the wheel pant is what this is intended for. Given, the plastic bracket will certainly do a better job but the axles do provide rudimentary support if utilized.

I know I am late to the party... I own all white rose wheels but 90% of my airplanes have wheel pants so as Vern stated I had no need for the bling of TI axels... I have been using Grade 8 1/4-20 Allen head bolts from McMaster as axels for years... in fact my extra that I got from Mr FlybyeSteve has had the same bolts for axles since I bought it from him probably 6-7 years ago... just a thought, Vern not trying to kill your sales just believe in KISS..

Vern I use your axles and wheels and tail wheels (Tiller Arm set up)
I am happy with all of the products.

Would offering a 5/16 diameter axle be an option for the larger aircraft??
