    Either will work, but go with the larger size and it won't flat as easily since the tube will be less stretched when inflated into the tire.

    Please take the extra couple of seconds to type those words out. With all of the other numbers in your posts the numbers that are supposed to be words make it difficult to understand.
    I may be fat but I'm slow enough to make up for it.

    another point 2 consider is weight. if you get the smaller 1, there should be less rubber and rotational weight. it does make 4 a difference.
