Anyone tube their G-060 tires. I have a right front with a very small hole, not cut. I could see not running a tube if I used the tire in the rear but I thought for the right front it would be ok. THOUGHTS

Ditto toolboy, the tube will add about 3-4 lbs of weight, in some cases that can be a good thing. Like a heavy track.

We have ran tubes before and they are fine. They work really good. It is better to get one that has the stem threaded so you can lock it in place. I like spending $12.00 verse $90 to replace a tire that is new. ltr spde

I have a bunch of them, I agree. I've tryed the other and the stem pulls through.

my idea on moving the tire over to the left front has nothing to do with the tube. i would not have any problem with running a tube. the small hole he has in the tire is the reason i thought he should move the tire to the inside. just to be safe in case it does go down, he could still finish the race.
