Light Truck Tire Tubes
Light truck tire tubes, like passenger car tire tubes, CAN be used for rim leaks, but SHOULD NEVER be used to repair a puncture. This includes sidewall tears or cracking, vandalism punctures, and even punctures in the tread. The RMA or Rubber Manufacturers Association, is very clear on their recommendations for tire repair for automobile and truck tires.

Choosing Radial vs. Bias
Tire tube manufacturers are phasing out of manufacturing BIAS tubes. this is partly due to the fact that RADIAL can be used in both radial and bias tires. There are still some types of tire tubes that are made in both radial and bias construction. Just remember RADIAL TIRE TUBES can be installed in both RADIAL TIRES AND BIAS TIRES, but BIAS TIRE TUBES can only be installed in BIAS TIRES. So, if your tire is of bias construction but a bias tube is not available, don’t hesitate substituting a radial tube. Radial tubes are designated by the letter “R” in the size (ex. 18.4R30).
