Anyone ever run tubes in their tires? I've got a couple of tires with slow leaks. The tread is hardly broken in yet so I'd hate to junk $140 tire.
Thanks in advance.

I have run them in Nascar pulloffs too, Tubes are fine, just make sure the inside is clean and no edges anywhere. Anything inside will eat them up under low pressures.

We used to go to the closest farmer's association and pick up those implement tubes that are really thick, made for fertilizer buggies, they work pretty well.
