    TW200 Tires?

    Dumb Question, I am purchasing a TW200 in two weeks, are the front and rear tires tubeless? Or do they have tubes? Thanks for the replies ahead of time!

    Pretty much, if it's got spokes, it's got a tube. Spokes are too hard to seal air tight.

    Unless the spokes go through the side of the rim or a rib.

    "First Thing You Do Is Change That Useless Front Tire" - now that we have that said lets give Rotor Wrench a big friendly welcome. We have an ongoing love/hate debate about the stock front tire. Some like it , others don't.

    Which is why I added the qualifier; 'pretty much'.

    There are contrarians. Believe it or not, I'm completely satisfied with the front tire. And rear.

    And the seat. And while I'd like higher gearing, I'm waiting on sprockets.

    And it ain't like I don't ride it. I've got 1400 miles on mine...I've had my truck parked since I bought it two months ago. Uses next to nothing in gas; and zips me all around town. Yee-HAA!

    I'm keeping those tires. When the time comes, I might just buy lightly-worn secondhand tires from other owners here.
