Tubeless tyres
« on: April 07, 2020, 04:52:09 PM »
Comming from BMW I'm not use to tube wheels, so is it safe to put a tubeless tyre, with tube of course, on the rims on my Tiger from 2019. Front rim is not MT type rim I have noticed.

In most cases yes - I believe there are some tubeless tyres that shouldn't be used with tubes but haven't actually encountered any.

With a tubeless tire on a non-tubeless style rim you don't get the benefit of the bead locking into the safety-bead of the (tubeless-style) rim.
The old-style rim leaves you with old-style problems of tire not remaining attached to rim in the case of a severe puncture.
Otherwise -- it fits and works (just not optimum).
There are a terrible lot of lies going about the world, and the worst of it is that half of them are true.
