Those are for bush flying. The larger tires help with shock absorption, traction, and keep the airplane from sinking into soft/muddy ground by spreading out the weight.

Yep the Godfather of Soul.

His mug shot after being arrested for beating his wife. I figured with the all the political battles in the squawk box people would wanna laugh at something.

A very fun-bouncy landing!

With radio controlled airplanes we used to put big tires on our aircraft for the exact opposite reason - landings became easier without them!
