That's right. Unless they make those silicone liners for the spoke ends in the rim's drop-center, like the lowrider guys use on their wheels. But you gotta have someone with the know-how and the right equipment to get the tire on and off the rim then, or they'll destroy that liner. And it's probably a moot point anyway, since I've never heard of anyone doing it.Just to make sure I understand this correctly. You can put a tube in a tubeless tire therefore the classic can use a tube or tubeless tire but will always require a tube because of the wire spokes?
I wouldn't say useless. The Slime will seal any small to medium puncture the tube probably better than it would in a tubeless tire. And because the gunk will stay in the tube, the guy fixing your tire won't be cussing you out like I do when I have to clean Slime or Fix-a-Flat out of a tire before repairing itOkay, what's really irking me now is the money I spent on a Slime kit and and an extra bottle of slime to go with it. Totally useless for my application.
I am pushing 17,000 on the front. I will be changing this spring. As soon as the weather allows me to drive it to the dealer.I'm almost sorry I asked. Since we are discussing tires has anyone any idea how many miles a set of the OEM Dunlops might achieve before needing to be changed ? Keeping in mind we all do not ride in the same manner.
