Default "Tube type" tubeless tyre

Hi,

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?

Do you remember some member saying that he had converted his cars to tubeless for about 250 bucks?
this was around 7 to 8 months back.
