Inner Tube Recomendation

Hi I am looking for new inner tubes for my Gravely L8 size 4.00x8 . The problem is all the ones I have seen have the valve stem in the middle instead of offset to the side. Any one know where I can get inner tubes with the correct valve stem and are decent quality???

Re: Inner Tube Recomendation

You may have to special order from TSC or Home Depot.

Re: Inner Tube Recomendation

I have already checked the local tsc and rural king. All they have is the wheelbarrow style tube that has the valve stem in the middle. I am looking for a tube with the stem offset to one side so it will fit the gravely rim better.

Re: Inner Tube Recomendation

You should compare the cost of new tires to the inner tubes. I recently paid $17.50 ea for 15x6-6 Kenda's for my lawn trailer. Tubes would have been $10 to $12 each. Tires had a lot of cracking .

Re: Inner Tube Recomendation

As for the tubes, I've never seen any with the valve stem offset. I redrill the holes in the rim and plug the old ones.

I second that. Just put a pair of 16x6.50-8 Carlisle Turf Saver tires on my Bunton for $55. New shorty valve stems are cheap too. One of the wheels had some rust inside the valve stem area because the PO used a tube. Tubes don't seal the inside of the wheel from the outside at the valve like real valve stems so water gets inside and corrodes the heck out of the wheels. I cleaned off the rust, welded the old hole closed, and drilled a new one 180 around the wheel for the new shorty valve stem. Spray on some paint and 24 hours later I had a pair of tubeless tires mounted and on the back of the mower.

My Horse I & Horse IV tillers run 4.80/4.00-8 tires. You can get that size Carlisle Power Trac AG/Bar treads for $38 each and the Carlisle Stud tread for $32 on Amazon with Prime shipping. They'll probably outlast you. My Horse I tillers first set of tires lasted from the 70's till a few weeks ago.

Re: Inner Tube Recomendation

not sure a tire would seal on a gravely L split rim without a tube in it. All the air would leak out between the split

Re: Inner Tube Recomendation

Googled gravely tire tubes.
This was the first hit... Looks like the valve exits somewhat to the side.

If the tires are cracked I'd still consider a new pair of Carlisles to go with the tubes.

I second this.

Try Richard's L&G, Berlin Gravely or gravely_tractor_museum on Ebay for the tubes.

Miller Tire sells 4.00-8 tubes. The web site doesn't say whether they have offset stems, but the last batch of tubes I bought from them did.

Re: Inner Tube Recomendation

I had no problems getting a set of 16-4.8/4.00-8 tubes with the Slime product pre-installed in them from TSC locally in stock. Stem was offset and fit rims just right.

Re: Inner Tube Recomendation

Worn out tires with new tubes does work in my experience but does make you more vulnerable to flats. Maybe best for a bunch of L's just those not run much.
