Having trouble finding the thorn proof tubes in the 20 x 1.50/1.75 size with the car valve for the dogs trailer.

Yes.
I had a thought, but it got run over as it crossed my mind.

Thanks and managed to buy a pair of these gel fitted heavy duty thorn resistant tubes from Woolies.

It seems your replacement exceeds the specs of the original. Min width 1.50 for both. Max width 2.10 for replacement vs 1.75 currently. Because they are suited for a larger width they will probably have more rubber and be thicker to allow more stretch. As you are buying slime filled tubes I’m guessing that weight isn’t an issue! The thicker tubes will probably also be more robust Which is good for puncture protection.

Woolies don't sell Slime tubes but I think that you bought it from Big W as it do sell these tubes. :)

I have been looking for a slime filled 20in tube. Currently running a 1.50 tube in a 2.8in tyre so a 2.10 will work far better.
