    Tubeless for sure. They'll work better.....but they do leak. I run Goodyears tubeless too.

    Tubes

    I ran my Hoosiers tubeless and coated the complete inside of the tire with Ivory soap before mounting them. The soap seals the tires without adding weight and never had a problem with the tire leaking down. It's an option.

    I've ran both. Car worked the same either way, but Tubes are pretty heavy.

    Tubeless all the way. lod school for me no rubbers.
    Tubes seem to push on the center more.
    I would say whichever you prefer will be just fine........Works both ways.

    Depending on how big your tires are, tubes can effect the way the tires wrinkle on launch. I'd run tubeless if possible.

    I have some steel rally rims I ran tubes in, but now I want to try tubless. What valve stem would I use, now that the hole was drilled to 1/2" ?

    You can get valve stems at Jegs or whereever that will work in a .453 or .625 hole. These are what I had to get with the wheels on my truck, the guy I got them from used tubes.

    Thanks, Its been a long time since I bolted in all my valve stems, and could not remember how they sealed.
