One of the original questions was: What size tube to suffice for both/either wheel? Anyone want to give a guess? Also, the holes in the rims for the TPMS are larger than regular valve stem holes. I suppose this would make no difference. Thanks, JD

The off-center valve position is not an issue. Here is a
link from someone who has experience with tubes in tubeless rim. I've been meaning to pick up a tube as well. The size that I was going to get is 3.5"-4.1" x 18". I can't verify with 100% certainty that it's the correct since as I haven't tried yet and I can't remember where I read this was the correct size.

It might be a good idea to have a valve stem fishing tool in the tool kit as well. The fishing stem has to be a male end that threads in once the valve core is removed, if you try and use a fishing stem with a female end that threads on the outside of the valve it won't fit through the valve stem hole on the rim.
