Tubless tires

Stan,

Not sure if you have spokes? If you have spoked wheels you would need to seal the wheels first.

You can use a tubeless tire on a tube type rim by using a tube in the tire. Most motorcycle tires don't care if you use a tube or not. It is the wheel that determines the use of a tube or not. Spokes generally require a tube. Mags or cast wheels do not.

At one time it was advised not to use a tube in a tubeless tire, the thinking being there would be excess heat buildup, but that has since been discounted, now they say, no problem, have at it. Not sure if my comment is what you are asking. In any case, Ride Safe.
