Has anyone come across an alternative source for the rear 16 x 5 inner tube on these bikes?

Polaris part number is 1823907, and they are somewhat unusual due to the offset valve.

I always carry a spare but don't want to pay Polaris prices if I don't need to.

You could always ditch the spokes for some stock or aftermarket mags, and end up with a better riding bike to boot.
I hear ya. But I have been riding all over Australia on tubes for more years than I can remember with no issues. Doesn't seem worth the expense. Now, if someone got me on the right day for a swap with stock mags...….

I swapped my spokes for mags. spokes look cool but are more trouble then they are worth.

They will have them. But to Australia it will be far cheaper to buy an OEM item.
I just want to know if there is any aftermarket manufacturer that I may be able to source locally.

I also have spoked wheels. Last year I sealed my rim with silicone, then mounted a Metzeler 888. I plan to do the front when due for tire change. I'M ve also picked up cross country rims in case I want to go that way. I did find tubes 16" with offset valve online either Metzler or ? Can't remember right now.
