NAS D110 Stock Tube Wheels

I have not checked yet to see if the tires that came with my 110 are tubed or not. I do know that the orig. rims they are mounted on are designed for tubes but does anyone know whether or not I can mount a set of tubeless tires on them and run them without a tube? I have a set of 6 BFGs that I would like to mount on the orig. wheels (coincidentally I got 6 stock wheels with the truck as well) but am not sure if I have to run tubes or not. I would prefer not to if it isn't necessary but I'm looking for some firsthand knowledge.

Thanks in advance.

The tube type rims don't a have a bead retention bump and can be somewhat hazardous - especially at low tire pressures. They'll hold air but a turning fully loaded vehicle with a low tire could roll the tire off the rim and be the start of a very bad day.

Andrew, here's a link to the thread where this was discussed. I'm getting ready to do the same thing, and had the same concerns. I'll let you draw your own conclusions.

I just siliconed the rivets before I had the tires mounted. Still hasn't gone flat in 2 years.

Neil, I'm still having a hard time taking you seriously with that mullet staring at me. It gives me the creeps.
