    Default Helmet bands

    Does anybody know what size inner tube is needed to make a rubber helmet band to fit a ben II helmet?

    OOOHHH I'm sorry I thought you meant Helmet "Bands" like Devo

    But to answer your question, the only inner tube that will work is a P235/75R 16 96H metric tube. That is the only one that will work. If you try another you're wastin' your time. You might have tobuy it new at a tire shop unless one of the other brothers has some scraps left over.

    Default Helmet Band

    This set up is $7.00 online. Not sure how much an inner tube costs, but thought I would pass this on to anyone looking.
    Stay alert and be safe.

    How about going to a gas station and getting an old inner tube that's going to be thrown away for free.If it's big tie a knot in it and cut the excess off. Make your own chocks from a piece of wood.Many times they get lost or forgotten or kicked around.I've seen guys get really anal about trying to find their store bought chocks that cost $10.Are you going to buy 2 or 3,one for the front door and one for the apartment door.Save your money and buy a good flashlight.

    well, I got a free 20 inch innertube- it fits the helmet pretty good, but the water can is another story. need a smaller one for the watercan.
