Yes, actually I do think I could keep most of it. Low PSI and plugs are quick repairs. But losing fluid isn't what I am worried about as much as the ease of repair.


A tire plug and refilling the 1/2 gallon that was lost versus taking a wheel off, breaking a bead, wrestling a nasty wet tube out from a stiff sidewall and small rim. Then you get to do all of that in reverse. Then completely refilling a tube.


Tubeless wins hands down in my opinion.

I'm with you! As Long as the inside of the wheel has a good paint job, it'll last for years!


And if I have to paint, i use self-etching primer covered with epoxy paint (appliance paint).
