    tubes are pretty flexible. You can actually stuff a 27.5 tube in a 26 or stretch it to a 29 and have it work in a pinch.
    See what I did there, flexible, pinch.

    I find with tubes yes you can use different sizes but if you can get tubes with a smaller range they are better. For instance the tubes you have would probably be rather large for anything under 2.0. Workable but not ideal. The tubes I buy (qtubes) have less range, for instance:
    1.9-2.125
    2.1-2.3
    2.4-2.7

    I've bought Specialized tubes that have a range of 1.75-2.4 I believe and they are the same size as qtubes 2.1-2.3.

    You'll want it to match what you're using for the Left inner tube.

    Should be no problem running that with your 2.7 tire.

    This times a bunch. Tubes by nature will stretch quite a bit. When in doubt, go smaller.
    Tried to tell my GF that but..........
    DAMN THE MUD, FULL SPEED AHEAD!!

    That's no problem at all, inner tubes are flexible to use.
    most inner tubes have a wide range :
    54-559 26x2.10
    55-559 26x2.15
    57-559 26x2.25
    60-559 26x2.35
    62-559 26x2.50
    64-559 26x2.50
    65-559 26x2.60
    70-559 26x2.75
    75-559 26x3.00

    You can use for example
