Re: Tubes for American Classic 19 inch radials

Re: Tubes for American Classic 19 inch radials

In talking with Snyder's, apparently if a 400/500/550-19 tube in 100% Butyl rubber it will work fine. Now, it's just finding them.

Are there any good prices on Champion 3X plugs?

From time to time there have been Champion 3X plugs for sale at a good price. I have not seen any specials lately. The current price at Snyder's is $36.00.

Re: Suggestions to get rear axle nut lined up with cotter key hole
