Can Tubeless Tires be Used on a Tube Tire Trailer Wheel  


Can the tires be mounted on a rim that has tube-type tires on it now?


Expert Reply:

You could use a tubeless tire in place of a tube tire. However when you use a tube with a tubeless tire it will cause the tires to generate excessive heat. And heat is the number one enemy of tires. Based on this it is not recommended.

It is possible to use a tubeless tire on a wheel designed for tube tires without a tube. The wheel has to be a one-piece wheel that has a hole for a valve stem and a flap to help seal the tire to the wheel.
