In my current video on YouTube for the Dirty Rat my day was shortened by a punctured tire and tube. I was running tubes so I could run lower pressure and not pop the bead so easily.  If I was on the trail, fixing that tube would not be that easy.  You have to pop the bead, at least remove one side of the tire from the rim to get to the tube.  If running tubeless, I could have ream and plug the hole.  Fill back up and keep going.  I'm too cheap for bead locks and not skilled enough to make them.  

So.... What are your thoughts?

Tubes?  No Tubes? etc?  Let's vote on it.

Personally on this one.  I may go back tubeless.  I'm not running that low on TDR!

I say tubeless when it's possible and carry one tube for the front and one for the rear just in case a tire is damaged beyond being plugged (other), that's what I'm doing in my rigs anyhow plus carrying a small car jack and building a bead breaking spoon that will attach to the spindle/axle to use the tractors weight to break the bead.
