    Hi,

    I have 2 donut-style Bucks float tubes I need new bladders for. I went to ask Bucks, but I wasn't able to reach them at their business. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions where I might find a bladder replacement or a truck tire inner tube dealer. I've looked online and frankly, I can't make heads or tails of the number of sizes offered.

    One of the tubes is 20" Inner Diameter, while the other is a 22." I have two U-shaped tubes now, but I'd like to give one of the Bucks tubes to a friend just getting into fishing. I would appreciate if someone might have some insight.

    Thanks everyone

    Inner tubes for sure. Inner diameter(rim) is the most crucial in the size. Tire Tubes will expand like crazy, just get that inner diameter right

    out of curiosity, do you have the old bladders still, if so are they completely ripped or do they just have multiple holes?
