    Default Tubes in tires. go or no go?

    I got a good deal on some mud tires that have been plugged a few times. This has me debating putting tubes in when I mount them. It is a low speed trail vehicle so I don't see any issues with it but I have never tried it before and I cant think of anybody I know that has. Is it a reasonable idea or not?

    You have to remove the plugs and patch the hole from inside and then you can use inner tubes.
    But keep good air pressure or the patches will cut the tube.

    Yep I've run tubes many different times, only issue is you're gonna want some sort of valve stem protection or get the "heavy duty" tube that has a steel stem that is secured by a jam nut to the rim.
