I have a Velorex sidecar with a flat tire. The tire is flat because the rim has a couple of hairline cracks. Can anybody direct me to a 3.50 X 16 inch tube for leaking rim?

Haven't mail ordered for a while, but Denis Kirk, and Chapperall, (sp), sell a lot of tires and accessories. Check them out on the web...

Shooter:

Thanks man...I just phoned up a company that I found through your directions, and it looks promising. This old Velorex sidecar works fine, but fixing a hairline crack in the rim is giving me a lot of headaches. I thought I would try a tube and see how that worked out.

You can also try this place online;

http://www.tiresnstuff.com/tubes.html

They do 350 x 16 for under $7.
Is the rim cracked near the spokes or at the edge? Reason I ask is that you can also buy wheel liners (wide ones) that might work better than just using a spare tube as a wrap.

The two little holes are about an inch below the valve stem where the downward slope from the bases of the spokes flares outwardly.
