tube size

Getting some new tires that are 26x2.1. My tubes I have are 26x1.75-2.0. Will the 0.1 difference matter or should I get new tubes? Thanks.

im running a tube that goes up to 2.1 and my tires are 2.3 no problems yet. maybe if you want to max out the pressure on the tires you will blow the tube before getting there...
