Purchasing New Tires

Do you have to buy tubes when purchasing new tires? Does the Vulcan 900 Classic LT have tubeless tires with spoke'd wheels?

The 900 classic has tubes.
Some people replace tubes & rim strap with every tire change.
I felt comfortable inspecting & re-using; changing every other tire.

YMMV

RE: To Tube or Not to Tube, That's the Question

Thanks for the reply Scott. I have checked on tires prices. I will look into the rim strap. Thanks Again
