## What size should an inner tube be compared to the tire?

When you buy an inner tube, the packaging will usually list which diameter and width it fits, according to the purchase manual. For example, if an inner tube says it’s best for 26 x 1.95-2.125″, that means the tube should be used for a 26-inch tire with a width between 1.95 and 2.125 inches.

## Is the bike tire and tube the same size?

While your diameter measurement needs to be exact, your width measurement does not. Because inner tubes stretch, they typically come in a range of widths. Some tires have dimensions in millimeters, but the basic measurement structure is still the same: Diameter x Width.

## Can I use a wider tube in my bike tire?

Some cyclists have used bigger tubes in smaller tires just fine. If the inner tube is a lot larger than the tire, it will cause folds and wrinkles inside the tire, which may affect your ride. If you have a tube that is only a little bit larger, then it probably won’t make a difference.

## What do the numbers mean on a wheelbarrow tire?

A common sizing system for wheelbarrow and hand-cart tires are 2 numbers, separated by a hyphen. The first number is the height of the tire sidewall, and the second number is the rim diameter. To get the overall diameter you need to do some math! 6 (rim diameter) + 4.00 (sidewall height) X 2 = 14 inches total diameter.

## What size inner tube do I need for 700x40c?

Here it is: pick a tube that matches the numbers embossed on your tire (i.e. “700x40c”). The size of an inner tube varies with the amount of air that you fill them with.

## How do I know what size inner tube to get?
