I just got some cxp 33's and the only 48mm stemed tubes around here are wrench force. The 30's are too short and the 60 are too long. These wrench forces have been blowing on me. Nothing is wrong with the inside of the tire or rim and they aren't pinch flats. Anyone know of other 48's that may be more reliable?

There are lots of other brands of inner tubes, but I doubt that is going to solve your problem. Just what do you mean by "tubes blowing" and where on the tube is it happening?

I won't be so arrogant as to not believe your experiencing some bad tubes LIKE you said. Salsa makes a 48 and that's what I've been using after also having some wrench forces that didn't hold up well. There aren't a lot of 48's out there. Try Salsa and I hope you have better luck with them, I did. Good luck

I had problems with wrench force too. I finally settled on Salsa after trying Specialized 48's. A friend uses Vredestein which makes a 45.

These are the same as Salsa. Made in the same factory in Taiwan to be exact. They are usually a couple bucks cheaper than the Salsa and have chrome stems instead of polished brass stems.
