What do you people think is more practical? Running tubes in implement tires vs going tubeless?

Mostly 7.60, 9.5, and 11L 15s if it matters.

I run tubes in everything as I'm not equipped to handle tubes tires. Also makes it easy if I have to patch a tire. Older rims often are often not smooth enough to seal a tubeless tire.

I prefer tubes; no concern with rust issues on the bead, easier to seat the beads.

Most rims on the equipment are made to run with a tube and if you try to run them tubeless they will not hold air well if at all plus can blow off the rim and hurt some one

I go tubeless. Then I dump slim in for flats.On bigger tires you can plug leaks without even taking the tire off.

Lot of my machinery is seasonal use, and sits out back.

So when I come to it 6 or 9 months later, I can bring an air tank and inflate the tubes and be on my way.

With tubeless, the tire slips off the rim, and there it is, have to take off the rims, go to the shed, get things popped back on, back out the machinery and put the rims back on. What a miserable pain.

My coop hates tubes, says they are poor quality any more, and doesn"t want to use them.

All of my impliment/flotation tires are tubeless and always will be. I spent more of my life patching tubes... time that I'll never get back... and time wasted. When you reach a certain load factor on an 11L15 they just eat the tube going down the road. Tubeless cures that problem. The downside is that you need to keep the wheels in good condition and painted... which is not really a big deal. Change the valve stems when you install a new tire, etc. As noted, a flat can be fixed with a plug. You also need a bead cheetah or get good with ether to mount/inflate the tires but that's not a big deal. Tubelss tire is a LOT quicker to change/repair. That's why tire shops don't want to see a tube type tire.

In fact, my tire coop hates tubes so much, they didnt put a tube in the tire they put on the front of my TW 20. Only trouble with, is it was a tube type tire they sold me.

Had to get that straightened out a year later when it wouldn't hold up.... Everyone was surprised it went that long.

If equipment arrives tubeless it is run that way until it has a flat or tire wears out. All repairs or new installed tires get tubes. Don't buy cheap tubes, they can be trouble.

Maybe 40 years ago. Today's implement wheels are mostly all tubeless.

Well if you think about it this is Yesterdays tractor and a person like me runs machines that are like say a NH271 baler or a NH850 baler and other such things. So with out knowing for sure what he has it is any bodies guess as to what he should or should not run and as a safety stand point I'll still stick with what I said

Actually, he did state that the tires were 9.5L and 11L-15. While they can be tubed they are generally regarded as tubeless.

Ah but both my NH850 and my NH851 have tires that size and they are in fact TUBE type only so again goes to how new or old his equipment is as to being safe or correct.

Ya now days tubes that are of any real value are hard to find. But then so is any good tire patch glue. Any more if I have the time I use an old hot type patch machine I have and the crap glue they sell and have had very good luck. Payed almost nothing for it 30 plus years ago and now I would not let it go for less then a grand
