Alrighty.. there I was, after a late night ride on wet roads, standing in Wally world's bicycle section, looking over the inner tubes. Looked at the Bell 20" tube.. looked good. Saw a Slime brand tube that looked even better, as it was noticeably thicker. Thick walls and sealant already in it. What an age of wonders we live in! Then I noticed the rest of the tube's measurements. The maximum width it (and the rest of the tubes there) were recommended for was 2.125". I'm going to install a 2.25 on the front and a 2.50 on the rear (93 Tomos).
Now I realize that the difference between 2.125" and 2.25" or 2.50" is tiny, but when hitting a bump at 40+ MPH while supporting 300 or so pounds, the extra stretching of the tube might be a problem.
So - has anyone had a problem using bicycle tubes on 2.50" tires? Is that .375" past spec anything to worry about? I've seen the Bell tubes recommended here, has anyone tried the Slime tubes?
