Maybe this is a dumb question, but why do I need tubes?

If you already have a good set of tubes, no problem. If not, I HIGHLY advise putting a set in... they will remove a frustration (slow leaks are a fact of life with old rims) . They are easier to do at the same time as tire replacement.

That way if your beed isn't set perfectly your tires will still hold air.It's actually alot less headache.I mounted a set of 23 10.5x12s on my 67 mf 10.They held air until i put them on the tractor.Two days later 1 was flat.Very frustrating.

If you order a set of tri ribs you WILL want tubes for them. Getting them to seat on the rim without is a real P.I.T.A., especially if they are distorted from sitting around like mine were when I got them. Plus likes allready been pointed out the chances of flats and leaks is a lot less.
