OT/ M715 Tires or tubes

Ok, Ive been working on my buddies M715 for a while now and everything is good except for a flat tire. The M715 is suppose to have a 16x9 tire and tube but his has the Michellen 16x11's on it. It has the old split rims so finding someone to work on it was hard enough and now nobody can find a tube for it. Ive looked on the net and called several places and keep coming up short. I can't find a tube for a 16x9 or a 16x11 so at this point he is willing to just find another rim and tire.
Can anyone help me out or maybe know a place that I can check with ????
We even found a place close that will make him a set of custom bead locks but it's going to be like $240 bucks a wheel and then the cost of tires so it will be a while before he does that... He has even checked on the M715 forum and has got any info yet, maybe I'll check them out. He's not big on the forums, yet!!!!!

MRT can make you a wheel for probably the cheapest (least that I have found). This will allow you to run the 16x11 michellens without a tube or flap. Most people run the stock size tubes though and they seem to work if you need something to get you by. Ricky is running the 16x11's on stock rims maybe he will chime in.

Thanks for the reply. We got to talking and I think we are going to try the
16x9 tube and see if it will work for a while. I ran across a pic of a M715 with some 52's on it. He's going to get a price on some 20 inch rims and see what it's going take to get some 52's under it.
