Hello All,

 

Im sure this has been answewred somewhere before, and i should really know this stuff by now...but...

 

I need to replace the front tires on my Speedex, 4.80x8.  Ive been looking around and I have found ones that are 4.80-8, or 4.00/4.80-8  im assuming this is the same? i know, toopid question, but id rather not be fighting with tires lol.  Oh, one other, shes got tubes in the tires now, however the tires ive looked at say tubeless, am i able to just slap them on the rims, provided their in good shape and put a good valve stem on??

 

Thanks,

 

Jason

As for the tire sizes being the same I can't say for sure either. I would run tubes in the tires, if you got a little dirt, rust or pitting on the rim where the bead goes it might not seal right. With a tube in the tire you don't have to worry about the bead sealing to the rim.

Yes, 4.80-8 and 4.00/4.80-8 are essentially the same. You should be able to mount them tubeless, just make sure you have a good clean bead seat or it may leak. Oh and :welcometogttalk:
