    Instead of carrying a spare tire I'm wanting to carry an inner tube to put inside of my tire if I was unable to plug it. I have 44" TSL's on 16.5 inch wheels. Can anyone tell me where I might find a tube that size and what size I should look for. The numbers I was finding for Tractor tubes made no sense to me.

    Has anyone else done this, and if so what size tube did they use and where did they find it?

    Good luck finding one with the valve stem in the correct location. I did this to a 35" spare that had a cut bead and I had to drill a new hole for the stem.

    Good point. I hadn't even thought of that. I guess I better bring a drill with me too...if I find a tube.
