    I just bought a set of 38.5 x 15 x16.5 gumbo mudders, tread is awesome but I fear one of them has a small pin hole in the side wall. I wanted to find tube to fit the tire so I don't have to use it for a swing. Where can I get a tube this big? Are there any major avantages or disadvantages? I have heard having a tube in the tire is handy for low pressure situations. Will I still be able to seat the bead on the rim with a tube inside? If anyone knows info is most greatly appricated.
    Thanx,
    Mike

    You call that dirty!?

    I'm not sure about the bead but I got a tube for my 38.5 through Big O tire. It was marked for a 33 but they said it would handle a 38. I figured it was better than nothing and it only cost me about $25. I would say it's worth a try, besides they make tubes for a lot bigger tires than 38's so why wouldn't it work?
