4.00 x 12 inner tube

Postby JSTRICKLAND » Sat Dec 18, 2021 8:02 pm

:help: Evening all,
Where do you guys get your inner tubes from? My Cub need a tr15 valve stem.

Any help appreciated.

If a local tire store can't get them, TM has them on their website.

Bob I took a look at TM's tube and it has the tr13 valve stem on it. I was told by the tire guys that I needed the tr15 style. Because of the size of the hole on the rim. Any thoughts?

You need a “plastic rim hole bushing”. M E Miller tire is the only place I know that sells them. They cost $.45 each. Not sure about shipping but I’d feel kind of silly ordering $.90 worth of parts. Perhaps you can order your tubes from Miller as well as the hole bushings. I’ve gotten front tubes from Miller and TM. Haven’t had any problem with them from either place. I prefer to order from TM but they don’t have the bushings. I think I ordered 8 or 10 of them from Miller in case I would ever need them again. I’ve seen the front tubes mounted without the bushing and hold up fine. But I wanted the bushing on mine to keep it centered.

Go to Miller tire online and do a search for “plastic rim hole bushing”.

I got valve stem bushings from NAPA, some time ago.

Yep NAPA near me had the bushings. A pack of 10 or so was a couple of bucks. They don’t fit in the rim tightly but seem to work fine keeping the valve stem from moving around and developing leaks

Any decent tire store will have the bushings, as well as the parts stores, should be easy enough to find.

My local farm tire store had the bushings so while I was there I got a few extras for the future. Call around and ask your local tire stores.

yes they make a TR13 adapter, just a plastic bushing that slides over the valve and fills the hole on the rim
