Steve, I had a similar problem but a shade
different. I went to the big ag tire store and
they sold me a tube for a 5.50 x 16 tire that
included a bushing where the stem goes through the
rim hole. When I tried to air up the tires the
bushing would come out every time I put air in.
What I found out is that most sales people sell
you a car tube with the smaller stem that is
located exactly in the inside center of the tube,
so when you start to put in the air it wants to
pull back out of the side hole that ag rims have.
I went back over to the tire store and explained
my problem and the salesman said that was all that
was available. That's when I said I wanted to talk
to the guys in the back. When I described to him
what was happening he said I had a car tube in an
ag wheel. I told him I was told that ag tubes were
not available according to the salesman. He said
follow me and we went back to a room full of tubes
and he pulled out a thick, offset large valve stem
Firestone tube and asked how many I needed. I took
4 home and they work perfectly. So insist on an ag
tube from a store that service and sell ag tires.
The name of the store is Wertenberger Tire in
Monroe, Indiana but they have affiliation with 200
stores in the midwest.
P.S. They can even supply 12 x 28 bare
unpainted rims so you can rerim the powershift
wheels using the old attaching plates after
removing from the old rims and welding to the new
