Tubes & Flaps

Tires in certain agricultural, industrial and other application segments are designed for use with tubes. Correct use of tire tubes can prevent air leakage, sustain long term use, reduce rolling resistance, support heavy loads, preserve tread life, and offer resistance to age and heat-related failure. Carlisle tubes have been designed for best air retention properties, high dimensional stability during service and reduced equipment downtime.


Some tires are tubeless tires, meaning they don't require a tube. Carlisle recommends that tubeless tires be used without tubes. Do not use a tube to "fix" a flat tire. Flat tires should be inspected and repaired (if possible) by a tire dealer.


When using a tube-type tire, be sure to use the proper size tube, the proper flap and an appropriate wheel/valve stem style with a new tire.
