Tire Tubes for 7.50X17" Rims

Posted: Tue Sep 29, 2020 7:28 pm
I have 7.50X17" tires for my 1934 Twelve. The tubes are shot and the valve stems on the tubes I got are way too short.
The old tubes were made by LESTER and they are from the early 80's I don't know if they are made any more.
Here are some pics of the old tubes. With the new tubes, when air is added, the stem is sucked into the inside of the rim.
The stem needs to be about 4" long and I can't seem to find anything to fit. Can someone help?? Thanks!

7.00-17 and 7.50-17 tubes are available from Lucas Tire. If you are interested in authenticity and correctness, they should have metal valve stems, not rubber; 1934 was the last year for metal inner tube stems and covers. I bought mine from Lucas along with Bedford Famous Coach tire and have been 100% satisfied.
