Welcome to a unique edition of Battle of the Base Wheels, where you, the readers, decide which vehicle has the best base wheels. Today is National Aviation Day in the States so we’re going to celebrate by deciding which fighter* in the U.S. inventory looks the best sitting on its landing gear.

Let the games begin!

Boeing A/V-8B Harrier II


Boeing F-15 Eagle


Boeing F/A-18 Hornet


Boeing F/A-18 Super Hornet


Fairchild Republic A-10 Thunderbolt II


Lockheed Martin F-16 Fighting Falcon


Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptor


Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II



* I’m including fighter-sized multirole and attack aircraft in here because they’re awesome and if you disagree, then you suck.
