tire tubes

Any reason why I couldn't put tubes in my stock wheels? Anyone ever use tubes?

Is there a benefit? I mean it is a cheap bead lock so to speak but does that matter to your riding style?

The shop that put my duros on had a hard time seating the beads on the rears. It was very cold and the rubber was really stiff. They did enough damage that both rears leak pretty bad at the beads. They even broke off a wheel stud.

Preheat the tire? You can wrap em in a electric blanket. Works really well. It does take 30 mins. to a hour. Or a propane torch works pretty fast. Obviously got to pay attention to what you are doing with the torch.
You don't want tubes in there. If you get a flat out on the trail you cannot just plug it and get home.

Good point! I hit a rock yesterday and puntured the side wall after 6 plugs I road the last 40 miles like new.

Been there before. Buddy of mine got his right on the edge at the beginning of the side wall. 8 plugs lasted from Crown King to lake pleasant and back on the trailer.

The rock hit the bead first then into the side wall. After getting home the plugs still have not let me down. Holding air like a champ. Now to buy a new tire but that's the price of having fun

It's only money.
1. You can't take it with you.
2. It's better if you have none when you die for anyone to fight over.

Oh a heat gun will work too just to warm the beads up for mounting and seating beads.

I wish they would have tried something like that. As it is the beads leak pretty good on the rear. They put some of the bead grease stuff on there and that held for awhile but i'm considering tubes.
