I know there are no "stupid" questions but here I go. I'm running WTB Slickasaurus tires (26x1.5) and need a new tube. Before I go buy, I happen to have a couple new 26 x 1 3/8 tubes for a old 3-speed rebuild. Woould it be wise to try one in my 1.5 tire? I'm in the middle of nowhere in Iowa and have to go 1.5 hours to get one. Can go online, but if what I have works...great! Just don't want to end up stranded out in podunk land ;-)

Those 26 x 1 3/8 tubes will work fine in a 26 x 1.5 tire.
