what sized tubes can i run in 700x35 tires

Hey guys, I'm converting my Giant Rapid 3 into a more commuter/bad weather friendly kind of bike. I just bought some 700x35 tires and then as I'm about to mount them I realized, I didn't buy new tubes. I know that typically you run a tube that is a bit smaller than the tire size so for example you can run a 700x19-23 tube in a 700x28 wheel. I have an avenir tube that is 700x20-25c 27x 1 1/8 Will I be okay putting this tube into my new 700x35 tires? If it matters the rim is a somewhat narrow Alex da16 which is 16.3mm wide.

Thanks

awesome, thank you. Turns out the other tire already had a 700x28-32 in it so no problems there.

pretty much any of those tubes will work, just keep in mind the smaller the tube the thinner it will be when inflated.
