Tubes and Tires for Vuelta Deep V Wheelset?

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

Tubes and Tires for Vuelta Deep V Wheelset?

I am new to this so I am sorry if this has been posted recently or if it seems like a dumb thing to ask. I've tried finding this information elsewhere on the internet but am having no luck. I just bought a Deep V wheelset for my fixed gear and am looking for tires and whatnot. I bought basic tubes, but the valve stem is too wide to go through the opening on the rim. Do I need special tubes, and how do I know which ones will work? Also, any tips on decent tires to get that don't cost too much. I will be riding on the road, nothing crazy, I don't plan on skidding or anything.

Any help would be appreciated, thank you.

You need tubes with long enough presta valves, not the schraeder ones you seem to have bought. Go forth and purchase more bike stuff.

42~58mm presta valves for 30mm deep section rims.

48mm is perfect for 30mm.

Wait, you couldn't find this information on the internet? Really?

I enjoy that you know you had better get a "Deep V" wheelset, or else, but you can't figure out that you need presta valve tubes. Who said the fixed craze was over?

Yeah, what DScott said...

And don't forget the SS/FG subforum; they thrive on questions like this
