I am going to buy a Michelin S83 tire for my PX150. Should I replace the tube and if so can anyone tell me what to order?

Are you sure it has a tube? Most modern scoots are tubeless!

Yeah, I took it apart tonight. It has a tube - Cheng Shing tube 3.00/3.50-10 20015125 (made in Taiwan) but can't seem to find the exact match online. The tube appears to be in good shape. I may just reuse it. Getting the tire off the split rims was a royal pain in the butt. Ordered a replacement tire online from bikebandit.com:

Michelin 300/350x10 tube
or any Inner Tube, 3.50 X 10

They all work fine...I like the Michelins for no particular reason.

Buy a couple for spares...it is a bitch to crack open wheels after awhile...new tubes are good insurance.

Oh..get Scooter specific with the bent stem...straight stems are hard to put air in.

Off topic- John Jay- I have that exact skateboard that is in your avatar.
I Longboard Larry Humu. Love it.

On topic - any 3.5 by 10 inner tube would do.

Thanks guys. That's quite a collection of scooters you have there John Jay. Is that 3 PX150's? How do you like them? Only had mine for about a month but I love it. I have a LX50 that I would like to sell.
