My front tire wont hold air. I haven't had it off yet, but will do this long weekend. But I am a little confused. Should this bike have tubeless tires or not? its a cast wheel, not spoked. There are Bridgestone Spitfire tires on it now but the valave stem seems odd to me and it wont hold air. The PO said he thought the tube was leaking. Can you have tubes in a tubeless tire? I thought they were different... Something about the internal smoothness.

Any info would be great.

Some tires have to have tubes. Some tires (I don't think it's many) can't be used with tubes.
Some don't care. Any place that sells tires should be able to get you what you want.

I went tubeless. No reason. Just did.

Tubes may be fitted to tubeless tires. That's the case for nearly every Supermoto bike (mine included) and Harley's with spoked rims because most modern street tires are rated "tubeless."
