Graphs of single walled carbon nanotubes are considered here together with their dual graphs. Formulae are derived which express the Wiener index of these graphs in terms of the number of hexagons they contain. Nanotubes treated have fully isolated pentagons on their tips but highly strained nanotubes with fully fused pentagons on their tips are considered too.
