WIRE WHEELS

1977 MG Midget

Tires and Wheels problem
1977 MG Midget 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 96,000 miles

My midget has wire wheels, repeatedly I have had to replace the tubes because of the valve stem getting cut.

Do I have the wrong size tube? Or will the hole in the rim need to be larger?

This has happened at least three times, all on different wheel location. Thanks!

Make sure the holes where the stem goes through isn't sharp and make sure the tube is in correctly that may be your cause of the tube failures. As long as the tube is for the tire size it should be ok.
