can't run tube inside of tire

I've got one leaking wheel and I asked tire shop if they could use tube and they said they wouldn't put tube inside. Anyone knows of a reason?

I probably would've done it except Les Schwab refuses to do so, of course they're not my favorite tire dealer, at all. If only I had a tire mounter

Can't the leaking wheel be fixed?

They do sell tubes for radial tires.........

Maybe, only certain radials can get tubes.

I have a set of winter tires on them, chrome is coming off the wheel so it's not sealing well.

I heard of leaking aluminum wheels. Painting the inside cured the issue.
Early cast aluminum wheels were cast by traditional methods. I think modern wheels are centrifugally cast procucing a higher intregrity product.

I say I think they're centrifigfal castings. I don't know for sure. I don't know about the 9C stuff. That means Chinese stuff.

It only seems reasonable an American importers (should) would seek centrifugal casting foundries from over seas suppliers.

I have a pair of aftermarket 35 Ford style wire wheels. I bought'em used. The guy gave me radial inner tubes. I haven't used'em as yet.

Just a thought....The stem on an inner tube is probably not in the proper place to fit in the stem hole on an aluminum tubeless rim . If it does somehow fit, if anything happened it would be a liability issue for the tire co.

Later, mikey
