Tubeless tyres


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.

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).
