Flat Tire on my 08 69er, will this tire work and what tube size do I need?

Looking at this tire: WTB EXIWOLF 29er TIRE

http://www.nashbar.com/webapp/wcs/st...0052_208622_-1

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.

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.

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.
