Tube Size for 24 x 1 3/8

Will a 24x1.5-1.95 tube fit a tire size 24 x 1 3/8?

It will work if you can get it all stuffed inside the tire and manage to seat the bead. But the extra rubber of a too-wide tube can make this more difficult than it needs to be. Is there a problem getting the proper size tube?

It may work, but the 24 x 1 3/8 tire has a larger bead seat diameter than a 24 x 1.5. 540 mm vs 507 mm. Tubes will stretch, but I would keep looking for the correct size.
24 x 1 3/8 is common on wheelchairs.

so the answer is yes, it will work but the caution is that it will be easy to catch part of it under the tire and cause a blowout. If you're careful to ensure the tire does not trap any tube under it when you put the tire on it will be just fine.
