    What tubes in the Weirwolf Lt 29er tires
    This may be a dumb question but do you just use a 2.3 wide tube and it spreads out or are there tubes wide enough on the 29er platform for the 2.55? And if so can someone please direct me?
    Thanks

    Any 29"er tube should work fine.

    Any 26"er tube that covers that width should be fine.

    In fact, I once had to put in a 35mm hybrid tube in a WW LT in a pinch and even that worked! (But I wouldn't recommend anyone else to try that.)

    I just use 26" tubes in mine, in the 2.0-2.3 range.

    yes and no. The "2.55" Weirwolf is really a 2.3 anyway, but you can use a smaller tube than that without problems too (26x2.1 for me)

    It's the way I run them but I wouldn't suggest it-
    I use a 26" x 2.1 thin walled tube in my WW LTs. Only problem is getting a patch to stick after they are so stretched out.
    Patches? Tubes? Yes, I'm that guy still in the stone ages of air retention.

    I have to agree they do well with stans... and tubeless

    I just ran a pretty std 29er tube in the past though- they are closer to a 2.35 or so but the smaller or thinner or 26" may reduce your overall weight, if not... stick with the right/closest size-

    that's what i've been doing for two seasons now. i've had great luck and it's a way better tire from a traction and trail feel standpoint when running tubeless.
