I'm putting one of these on an ASLAC PC and I can't seem to find a decent Pi tire. Would they be army green or. Civilian orange/ yellow??

It's not green , but I believe it a metal one that breaks into 2 pieces , whereas the one I'm using is the solid one piece pastic one.

Not to be a nit picker, gents but that piece of equipment on the vehicle is not a spine board and is not supposed to be used for spinal immobilization (doesn't provide the necessary stability during movement). The item in the picture is a scoop stretcher, it separates along the long axis and is reconnected around the patient; the general use is for fractures of the neck of the femur/hip. Spine boards are just that, boards and can come in any color the customer specifies in a contract, although the military prefers green. I've worked in fire/EMS and military medicine since I was eighteen (back when those boards were actually 3/4" plywood and you could build them at the fire station...) so I've seen a lot of stuff come and go.
