I just put a TSC tube in my Troy Bilt tiller and did my garden. Still full even today.

I have had good luck with tubes from TSC. I only buy little ones though.

I have a different solution that works well for me.  To heck with the tubes and the Slime and the valve stem tools and the pry bars and all that stuff. 


I support my local tire shop!

I stopped going to TSC when Rural King opened a store near me. They are SO much better than TSC.


Unfortunately, they only cover a few states right now.  Hopefully they will expand as they are a TRUE Ag store as opposed to TSC.


Their pricing is very good as well.  The up side for you folks that don't have one near you is that they WILL ship.




We have Theisens around here. Pretty good place.

TSC is junk and should be renamed HSC (Horse Supply Company).

just like all types of stores. YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR!! we as a society demand cheaper prices and we sacrifice quality for it. I always try my local stores first, no matter what it is.

Remember this, if you buy local it helps your economy not some conglomerate. I know it's more convenient to go to box stores. But support your NEIGHBOR!!! He may in turn support YOU!

The firestone tubes were $14 & change, while the TSC tubes were $17 & change!  But do you wanna hear something funny....well, not so funny.........the firestones say "made for Firestone....in China"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!   But I figure Firestone has quality control people there to ensure a good product.  Or at least I hope so.
