vacuum fittings


I want to get some tubing to replace some of the vacuum attachments (simple straight-through, two way pieces) between the hard vacuum lines and the various nipples on certain parts.
Fastlane doesnt have these, and I know my dealer just cuts from a long thin tube of the correct size, but the price is ridiculous.

What do I need to know to get some proper tubing to do this? I am mainly concerned that some tubings may be too soft, and may collapse on itself. Id keep the rubber parts really short to minimize the chance of that, but still, I want to pick the right type of tubes.

Can I get generic corect size tubes from autozoe or lowes?

ANy help is appreciated, Thanks
