19-24 latex tubes with 700x28 tires

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

19-24 latex tubes with 700x28 tires

Is anyone running the smaller (20-23) latex tubes with the wider tires. I have wider rims and run 700x28 conti tires. I read somewhere that you shouldn't use the smaller latex tubes with the wider tires. I've run the smaller butyl tubes with wider tires with no problem. For some reason the 25-28 latex tubes are harder to find and much more expensive than they once were.

I have not tried it but I suspect it should be fine.

I've done it without any problems.

I wouldn't recommend using the smaller tubes with any tires much larger (say, 32 or 35), though I've done that in a pinch as well.

if you start getting more flats with the smaller tubes in there would be when I'd start looking for 28c latex.
