Tyre Tube Capability HELP!

    Can you guys help me out, I have FIVE new tubes measuring 29 x 1.95/2.5, will these be compatible with my rims that are 32 x 622 and 38mm Panaracer gravel kings?

    I'd have thought they'd be much too big and not inflate remotely enough?

    You might be able to squeeze them in, but as Weepsie says, proper inflation will be a problem.

    Another issue is that it's much easier to pinch the tube on the rim as you stuff it into the tyre (ask me how I know that 🙄)
