Was a tad bit careful while driving though. Came back home and get a new tire.
Ok, I think I am going to go for new tyres. It is just not worth the risk. To save 8-10K bucks I'd end up putting my entire family at risk...

Yes sorry, I meant section width. Not planning to change the Rims at all, so I'll see if I can try one upsize. Thanks.

Default Re: Tubes on a tubeless tyre??

Two points
1. Putting tube in a tubeless tyre is quite safe.
2. If the tyre is not repairable as a tubeless, then I guess there is a fair chance that it may be too far gone for safety even with tubes.

Thanks Sir. I have now almost decided upon replacing the JKs with Michelin Energy XM1+ 's. I'll put the Yokos on the Rear, and the new ones go upfront.

I completely agree with your Point 2 above, and hence my choice.

Make sure the new tyres are in the rear.

AFAIK: The sidewall of a tubeless tire is not strong enough to handle the friction and heat generated by the tube.

1) Wheels lose balance(Vibration at speed).
2) More chances of a blowout if using wrong tube sizes.
3) Firmer ride & loss of comfort.

Bottomline: Use one as a spare in emergency.
