Look at the hole where the air would go into the tire., and at the rim itself. Although I never heard of a tubeless bicycles tire, except for the solid rubber tired ones, there may be some of the racing bikes or VERY expensive models that do not have tubes. If your rim has a plain hole, it should be using a tube inside the tire, same as a wheel barrow. If there is a valve stem with a core mounted in the hole, not connected to a tube, it is tubeless. Most bicycles rims also are not air tight, because of the holes in the rim for the spokes. This means there are about 30 - 40 holes beside the hole for the valve stem of the tube. Those holes have the nut of the spoke in them, and are usually covered with a wide "rubber band" to keep the tube from being punctured by the spokes.
Be blessed.

Which tyre best for honda cb shine 80/100-18 tubeless or 3.00-18 tubetype

Hi Nagraj, it all depends on what type of wheel you are running. If your wheel has spokes you must use a tube, if your wheel is cast you can run tubeless. Good luck

I have a nail in my motorcycle tire what's best

Depending on where the hole is at. and is it a tubeless or tubed tire? Is it a MAG or a spoke wheel. I'll guess Tubeless and MAG. You can just throw a good mushroom plug in it as long as it's not too close to the outside edge. The best way would be to remove the wheel and plug and patch from the inside. At that point you may as well just buy a new tire though, unless you do it yourself. If this is a metric bike that you're getting on it all the time and banging corners and dragging knee....personally, I'd replace the tire.

Sir i have harley davidson sportster 2011 . The air from rear wheel spokes started leaking of sudden . can u suggest what could be the problem .

Since I specialize in working on the older bikes that the dealerships will no longer service, I'm afraid that I am at a lose as to what type of wheels H-D is putting on their newer machines. With that said, I will say that I have never seen a "wire spoked wheel" that was capable of being run with a "tubeless tire" with any degree of reliability. Wire spoked wheels by their very design do not lend themselves to being run with a tubeless tire simply because it's too difficult to "seal" the wheel with all the spoke nipples in it. Even those that do advertise to be capable of "tubeless tire applications" have problems. The spokes move making sealing them a problem. I'd NEVER run a wire spoked wheel tubeless. If you're talking about a cast wheel, this is a different story. If the cast wheel is leaking and the bike is a 2011 model, I'd take it back to the dealer and talk with them about it. It should not do this.

Good Luck

There is a small nail in my real tire. Should I buy new tire and replace it myself? Should take it the tire repairs service? What is the best and cheaper thing to do. I don't even know if it a tubeless...

Hi, have you checked if it is loosing air, try removing it and see if it goes down,if it. Leaks as you try to remove it then push it back in and leav it in the tyre, some tyre fitting centres will repaire it for you if it is not damaged inside as a result of overloading, take the wheel along to a fitting centre and ask about a repaire, or contact 1by telephone and enquire if they do repaires to motorcycle tyres before you travel, there is a stigma with repairing motorcycle tyres as a liability problem may exsist if the machine lost traction due to loss of air. Even though the manufactors say it is ok to repair, probs best. Buy a new 1, what bike is it fitted to, if it has spoked wheels it poss not tubeless, if it has alloy wheels it should be tubeless

Can i fix huge tubeless tires like 180 , 220 in 150?? please help.. is t possible???

Yes it's possible but it's about as dumb as riding naked.... it just don't make sense... most people only repair tubeless on fourwheelers or shop bikes... just spend the money and get a new tire... safety first...

Tube or tubeless??

If the rims are with spokes they use tube.If it has aluminum rims (like a street bike) then you can install tubeless tires
