7.00 x 18" Inner tubes

Recommended Posts

Hello Forum,

I'm looking for inner tubes for my Daimler Dingo, wheel size 7.00 x 18"
They need to have the steel angled valves.
I've googled, but got lost in Alibaba-offers!
Any UK based truck or tractor suppliers  ?

And YES : those are for the NON-solid tyres 7.00 x 18" wheels.
Will need 4 or 5 of them.
 

Hope you can help.

Hi,

What tyres are you using? Are they the runflat tyres which were tubed (ie those used during the war before the RFEI was introduced)? If so then a 7.00-18 car or truck tube will be no good as it will be too big, the cavity in the tyre being smaller plus the beadlock ring. Using too large a tube will mean it will crease and liable to fail. There were special tubes made for the runflat tyres.

If you are using truck tyres of conventional cross ply type as I did, then I got tubes from North Hants Tyres, they are up in the Aldershot area.

regards, Richard

Hello Richard,

I'm planning to use the RF2 tyres and keep the solid tyres back on reserve.
I must say I forgot about the inserts for the RF2, but with a normal size type of innertube I'm figuring I don't need to fit them as the innertube will fully inflate the tyre.
(Will regret it when I get a puncture though ! )
The 2 first photo's shows the tyres I 'm planning to use, the last photo shows the same type of tyres in use (Normandy 1944).

But thanks for your comments.... made me think extra !

And I forgot to mention:
found innertubes locally for a very nice price (20 euro each) and will fit adaptor valves to inflate hem.
Very handy those adaptor valves !
