Red face How to replace a 110 tube

I have the oem michelin tube 750R16s that are tube tires, and I have a flat now as my spare. Strangely enough, I can't seem to find a place here in charlotte that can repair the slow leak on my tube. Every answer is "no we only work on tubeless". I'm ready to do it myself if I can, and my "vehicle expedition prep" manual recommends tubeless anyway due to ease of maintenance in the field, so i should be able to patch the tube, right? until I can spring for new BFG M/T's (which I haven't convinced my wife of as the michelin's have plenty of life left), can anyone provide DIY advice on repair/replacement of the tube? Theoretically, shouldn't be more complicated than a bike tire....

No point in running tubes unless you know how to fix them yourself. I use a hi-lift to break the bead then a crowbar, 4lb hammer, and a couple of prybars to get one side of the tire off of the rim and the pull out the tube and either patch it or replace it with a new one that I carry for just such times.

thanks. that's the advice I was looking for. I didn't choose tubes, they chose me when I bought the vehicle. I'll be tubeless hopefully by end of summer.

Usually tractor places will do tubes. Most of the new tubes are both radial and bias compliant, but call ahead to make sure they have one. 7.50 x 16 is about as common as they get.

BTW I really like tubes as they rarely lose air like tubeless do. I get so many stupid slow leaks if I could find and run tubes in everything I would. Of course they are difficult to patch or replace in the field and generally go completely flat when flat as opposed to a slow leak.

any thoughts on that green goo that is now sold in stores for bike and car tires as a flat preventative? My leak was a very, very slow leak, so it's probably a pin hole or something.

Air it up twice. Once with the valve stem removed and then let it deflate a bit. Replace valve stem and reinflate to correct psi. This helps seat the tube and center the valve fitting in the wheel.

I hate tubes. They always rip when I air down.

I hear tubes are prone to condensation with temperature/atmospherical changes and this then makes the steel rims rust more than tubless. Don't know how true it is, but it does make some sense.

For purposes of posterity, I am posting this resource in Australia that supplies tube and tubeless field repair equipment for off roaders, as well as their US distributors. They have an excellent how-to instruction section on field maintenance for tires.
