After I read all the posts in this thread, I decide to try something else. I picked up the old tire from the trash can, patch it with duct tape in 2 layers. It seems like holding up pretty good even though I haven't gone out yet since I replaced it.
The glue in the duct tape will react with the tube and eventually cause a hole.
