Looking at this tire: WTB EXIWOLF 29er TIRE
The stock tire hes less then 200 miles on it, somehow I got a tiny hole in the sidewall of the tire and I was told I should replace the tire AND innertube.
Biggest inner tube I found for a 29" wheel is 29x1.75, will that work? Here is a link the the inner tube:

It should be fine, but you might not have as much resistance against a flat as something like a 2.0 or larger inner tube. Personally, I'd say it would work fine.
Where can I find the correct size tube?

Remove your tube and read the size on it.

What pressure do you run. That should work, but I wouldn't run it any lower then 50psi. It'll be thin
I use 26" tubes in my Niner all the time. You've got to be a bit more careful about pinch flats.
I'm sure the 29x1.75 or whatever will be fine.
Pricepoint is where I buy tubes. 5 for $15 (http://www.pricepoint.com/detail/17438-345_PNT297_SET-3-Parts-74-Tubes/Accessories/Price-Point-Tube-29er---Set-of-5.htm).
As for tires, the Exiwolfs are a pretty good all around tire. Numerous threads are around here and at the 29er forum at mtbr.com on tires. I'd look some of them up.
