[ Urgent ] Putting tubes on a tubeless tyre ??


Recommended Posts

Hi guys while travelling my rear tyre which is a tubeless hit something and started losing air , so i went to the nearest bike shop but the gash is too deep to be repaired and i don't wanna replace my rear tyre yet cos still new leh . Only 1month + of usage ..

 

So the shop suggested installing tubes into the tubeless rear tyre .

 

so the question is , is it safe in the long run ?

anything wrong with putting tube in a tubeless tyres ??

Like added weight or performance loss or lesser grip ??

 

thanks in advanced

Nothing wrong with putting a tube in a TUBELESS TYRE. Most of the tyres in the market are the tubeless kind.

 

Trying to put a tube on a TUBELESS RIM is not normal. You have to remove the tyre valve from the tubeless rim first. Some tubeless rim valves fitment holes are smaller... so there may be a problem trying to get the inner tube valve through.

 

A hole which a repair cannot be done is probably too big and has probably cut the reinforcing casing cross plies. The strength of the tyre carcass is now in question especially when under pressure or at high speeds.

 

The question here is... how much do you value your life? Is your life worth lesser than the price of a new rear tyre??

 

Failure of these 2 things on a bike at high speeds will definitely cause you to get into an accident.... tyres and brakes.

 

But then again... its only my humble advice, its your money, your bike and your life.. do as you please.
