    My old 275/60 15 MT Drag Radials are used up and any throttle input results in blowing away the tires

    I've been looking at these tires and MT mentions they need tubes

    Now I've heard that you can run tubeless by coating the inside of the tires with dish soap . Has anyone done this and how often do you need to check air press ??

    Is there a reason you're going from a radial to a bias ply tire?

    I've ran tube tires tubeless forever without ever doing a thing!!!!
    Once in a while one is a slow leaker, but never enough to go through any extra installation steps.
    All I do is make damn sure the wheel is nice & smooth so I know the bead is seated as good as it can.

    Same here.M/T 26x10x15 bias ply slicks. One leaked, but takes a week or so to go flat. Never ran tubes. I ran radials on front, and didn't like the sketchy feel on the big end. Went back to a drag radial. Much more stable now. Running Sportsman's on the front should help a lot. Mixing them IMO is not a good idea. I bought the slicks over one winter after buying a pair of AlumaStar 2.0's from a friend with Sportsmans mounted. Then found out they would not clear my calipers. Bad planning on my part.

    Also, NEVER run that gooey stuff, or self repair stuff.
    I've heard some issues with that stuff not being safe, but can't remember the exact issue for race cars???

    I had those and I ran tubes.......I like the stability. Plus I set my pressure after the 1st hit and it stays the same all race long.

    Why not just use the tube's ? Not expensive,, I don't see a down side to using the tube's....
