Do any companies manufacture inner tubes for P215/50R17 90H tires? What can you tell me about them?

Tire Concerns: Inner tubes
by: Harvey Brodsky

You will not be able to find a P215/50R17 inner tube. There just isn't enough demand for anyone to invest in molds for the new low profile passenger car tires.

If you were going to use it on a farm wagon or off road slow vehicle you might use a KR16. (the rim diameter is not as important with a tube).

For an H speed rated tire in highway service I wouldn't fool around. If it's a bead leak you need a new wheel, a new tire or both. BETTER SAFE THAN SORRY.
