    Can Michelin AirComp Ultralight C4 tubes be used with a 1.5 tire?

    Hello, i have several Michelin Air-Comp Ultra Light C4 inner tubes.

    Currently, im switching from 26X2.0 tires to 26x1.5 tires.

    In Michelin's web site, it says that my tubes can be used with a 1.5 tire

    However over the box, it says the tubes can be used with 1.6-2.1 tires.

    Another problem is that, over the box it also says the tube can be used with 37/54-559 tires.

    Since 1.5 tire is 40-559, the box contradicts itself

    Im confused :S

    Welcome to the wonderful world of nominal sizing. Because tires and tubes are a flexible item (except for the bead seat diameter) the actual size can vary widely.

    The tubes should fit. Try them. If they do not fit, get narrower tubes.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common
