Bought a new GT from Sears a few months back.  I've installed a sleeve hitch and bought a box scraper for my driveway.  I plan on working a garden in the spring and will need AG tires.  Some of the tires i've found on Ebay are tubeless and some are not.  Does my GT have tubes?

Welcome :wave:

Take a look at the valve stems and see.

If your not sure post a picture and we can tell you.

You will want a tubeless tire.

Bend the rubber valve stem slightly where it enters the steel wheel.  If there is a lip on the rubber larger in diameter than the hole in the steel wheel it is tubeless.  If it goes through the steel wheel with no lip, it has a tube.

I own many tubeless tires with tubes in them. I usually do, even if they're tubeless as an added layer of protection. Especially if I am filling the tires.

Most likely they are tubeless. If they are not let us know.
