Tube size for Ec 8x8 rims
« on: January 01, 2016, 11:36:43 AM »
16/7.5/8 turf savers . Is there a tube size that works better , that does not bow center of tires out?
I tryed 16/7.5/8 tubes and they bow these 2 ply tires pretty good at 10psi. Better off not running tubes with these tires? Or a bigger tube? Thanks for any info
I never ran tubes in my 13" tires but a little worried about the 16".

No tubes the EC rims work great with 16x7.50 tires,thats why they have the added ribs where the bead bundle seats on the rim..

We have to run tubes on the right side tires where we run I run 18 7.5 8 tubes in my 16 7.5 8 tires on the 8 by 8 rims and works flawlessly
