Way back when, I used to run tubes in the tires for my Tiger. That was before I
came to trust tubeless tires. Back then they made a special heavy-duty
(thicker) tube for radial tires. The radials flex more than bias-ply tires and
therefore are harder on the tubes. If you find a tube, make sure that it's OK
for radials, that's assuming that your tires are radials.
Good luck on your tube quest, shoot-now may still be your best option.

Subject: [Tigers] Wire Wheel Tubes???!!!
Ok Team, I have a minor emergency and you are the first resource I think of. I
have a series V alpine that I sold and it has wire wheels with knock offs on it.
the tires are trash, and i assume the tubes are too because they go flat in
minutes. I have extra tires for the car but need tubes for a factory sunbeam
wire wheel. I havent called any of the local stores yet, but do you expect any
retail or shops in an average us metropolitan city to sell tubes for a 13"
lastly, should I shoot myself now or later?
