As others have said, you don't need a tube for a cast wheel. Just check yer valve stem when ya change tires. And as far as balancing, since yer doin it yer self, look into balance beads. I change my own tires myself also. I even put a car tire on rear, and a rear tire on the front of my 1100, and I use both the Dyna Beads, and another brand that I wanted to compare with the Dyna Beads. Can't remember what they're called at the moment. But they both work great. No shimmy, shake, or other vibration that I can detect. And I didn't even do a static balance first. They work by constantly balancing yer tires while ya roll. Truckers use them in their tires also to get extended life out of their tires. Good luck in whatever ya decide ta do.
