    Which inner tube would you recommend.

    Hi, I have a 2008 DT 8FS with 20 X 1.5 on the front and 20 X 1.75 in the rear. I'm placing an order of inner tubes online, but not sure which ones to get and what's a good website to get them from. My tires has different width between the front and the back, do I have to get different inner tubes?

    any recommendation of brands or websites?

    thanks in advance.

    Get Schwalbe - they are HUGELY better than others. You won't have to pump for months to keep the pressure up.

    Just get 1.5 - they are good for both.

    If you cannot find the Schwalbes, Continental make a range of good tubes - a cut above the cheaper generic Far East ones. 'Compact 20' are 406 x 1.5
    - every mile of road has two miles of ditch -

    thank you Jur and Snafu21:

    I did have a bit of hard time finding the Schwalbe AV 7, but eventually placed an order of 4 from Thorusa, slightly cheaper than what Schwalbe charges here in the States. Thanks for the link nevertheless, Jur! I really appreciate it.

    now it's time to get an patch kit for a temporary fix before the tubes arrives

    Thorn resistant tubes have more rubber in them.
