Tubes will go in any tire, all you gotta do is cut the valve stem off the rim if there is one on it.

For fitment, you want to match your rim size to the tire. For example, if you have a 8" rim that is 7.50" wide, youre going to want a tire to fit your 8-7.50 rim.

If your rims arent leaking though (rust holes) and the tires hold air (no dry rot), then you should be fine tubeless. Best way to test that is to mount your tire, fill it up to the required pressure and pour soapy water all over the tire and rim to check for bubbles. If its a puncture hole, it can be repaired. If it leaks around the bead (tire meets rim), you can have an auto shop reseat it for you with some bead sealer. If the rim is leaking it can be welded, but its tricky. If the tire leaks from a crack from dry rot, its toast and you need tubes.

I forgot to mention, if you do go tubeless and you dont have a valve stem, you will need to put one in. An auto shop should be able to do it really cheap, I change valve stems all the time and its really easy to do, takes like 2 seconds.

Hi welcome to the forums. Doug and Maine have it right.

Its just a matter of matching rims size.

I've been finding lately that ATV rims and GT rims are usually different sizes. trying to find turf or ag tires for my ATV rims is proving difficult.

The local boys won't race with me if I don't get turf/Ag tires.

Oh, and by the way, where in he (doublehockeysticks) did you learn to spell TIRES.

LOL, JK, Very Happy Smile From a canuck to a brit. and by the way boots are worn on the feet. I keep my spare TIRE in the trunk. Bonnets go on pretty young girls in old movies. We call that a hood. Which unfortunatley goes oover the heads of youg criminals.

Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Smile Sad Surprised Shocked Cool Laughing
