Metzler 880's

I am considering buying the Metzler 880 www's for my 97 vulcan 1500 classic and I can't seem to find anywhere on the internet that tells me if these are tubed or tubeless I have spokes so I definitely need tubed, any help would be appreciated.

thanks

The tires may say tubeless on them but as you said you have spokes. You can use tubes with tubeless tires no problem. FYI it's a good idea to buy new tubes along with the tires.

I run tubes on tubeless tires all the time. That's no problem at all. It's cheap insurance to always buy new tubes and new rim strips every tire change also. And every other tire change I have the spokes tightened and the rims trued.
