"Tube type" tubeless tyre
I got a set of Bridgestone tubeless tyres from a dealer some weeks back. However, recently a friend saw the tyres and said that these are actually "tube type" tyres but have been converted to tubeless by putting a valve on the tyre by the manufacturer. When I asked him how could he be certain, he showed me a marking on the tyre that said "Tube type".
I am somewhat confused as to why would a tubless tyre have a marking "tube type" ????

That sounds ridiculous. The compound used in tubeless is very different from tube type tyres. I don't think you can run tube type tyres without tube. What is the make of your tyres?
