my 1932 B wheels have 525/550x18 tires on them now. will a 475/525x18 tire work? If so, what size inner tube would be correct? I believe there is a 450/550x18 tube. thanks

Tyrone,
I have run those wheels on one of my speedsters since the 70's. I'm not with the car to read the exact size on the tires, but I'd think they should work for you. I went through several cheap center-stem tubes, until I finally turned loose of the money and bought the good ones with the offset stems. I've had no problems with them since.

Mike. I'm glad you mentioned about the off set stems. They are expensive but if they work right, than they are worth the money. Thanks again.
