Tubeless Tyres

Afternoon all,

 

I ordered some E-07 tyres which i thought would be a good idea for pottering around the roads getting used to the (new to me) TTR and doing some gravel roads and the like as an intro to off road.

Of course like a muppet I've missed, the now obvious, 'TL' in the tyre code.

 

So the question is will a tubeless tyre fit on the rim with the tubes or do i need to have a re-think?

 

Thanks

You can use a tube without a problem

Eo7 are a good tire for road .Quiet smooth and very long lasting .There grip in wet grass or deep mud is not the best but a great all-rounder where long life and road use are important.

They are a bit difficult to bead out so use plenty of lube and drive to a garage with a good compressor if you have any difficulty.

Good grief. Took hours but got them on.
Lot's of black tyre paste required. Used a bike pump as that's what i've got on hand. had to take them to ~46psi to seat fully.
Not sure i'm going to have a good time if i get a puncture out in the field. I'm hoping having a thicker tyre and a new heavy duty tube will mean i'll avoid any punctures.
