Default Nose wheel tube

Got about 300 hours on a AeroClassic leakguard tube before a pin hole developed. Has anybody searched Tractor Supply for a compatible tube that would work? And it so is the quality comparable? I thought I read somewhere that someone had but canít find the post now.

My first tube lasted about 300 hours also so now I know when to do preventative replacement.

Thanks for any feedback.

I got spares (two of em) for $11 each from Aircraft Spruce.

The shop screwed up the first replacement. Different shop this time, but still..
