    BMX Inner Tubes

    I need to get 2 new inner tubes for my son's BMX. DOes anybody have any recommendations regarding type and where to get them.

    I had a quick look and there seem to be a few different brands/types out there and as he's had 4 punctures since the end of June I want to get some decent ones.

    Any advice gratefully received!

    Cool, cheers for that, rep left!

    tesco do some for about £1.00 i think all sizes

    Very much doubt the quality of the inner tubes makes much difference.

    You can purchase an accesory that fits between the inner tube and the tyre, it is hard to penetrate, so less punctures. I believe it's made out of a tough plastic.

    I personally wouldn't use anything that involves putting gunk in my inner tube.
