Default Tubes for a Flat Tire on the Trails

James found this and I thought I'd share it with all.

Tubes large enough to fit in our big as tires, for 15"-20" wheels and 33" tires up to 44". Obviously they are NOT intended for street use, but as a trail repair they are perfect for those of us who can not/choose not to carry a full size spare on the trail with us.

the problem is the valve stem usually is to large to fit through the standard hole.
might want to check that.

I used to install tubes in all kinds of tires. theres no reason you can't use them on the street. the only issue I ever found was some tires get out of balence if the tube is installed wrong. if they are done right then the tube will out last the tire & wheel.

yup, you're right. These tubes use a 5/8" valve stem, not sure what the standard is on a car wheel, but I'm thinking it's smaller than that. I'm sure the dude selling these has a solution, but if not, I'm willing to bet you can find a valve stem that would work.

Most of the time it's just as quick to run back to camp to get the spare tire, but there are some trips where that's just not an option and this would solve that issue.
