I'm buying new tires, looking to run 140/80-17 on the front 170/80-15 on the rear. I have spoked rims so I'm told I'll need tubes but I'm having trouble finding out what size I need. Most of what I've seen have codes similar to tire sizes and I'm guessing that the last number indicates the rim size? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

So all in all I need tires, tubes and rim strips, the fronts need to be 18" and 15" rears?
Yes. I'd throw DynaBeads into that order but that's just me. Reclaiming the old ones doesn't seem to be worth the effort. And baby powder.

Changing the tires yourself? If so, take a look at this -- something I want to try next time:
o removal
o installation
Seems to me this would be an ideal way to prevent pinching the tubes -- something I manage to do quite well.
