Well I picked up a set of tires yesterday, ended up not going with the Duro mud and sand tires as they were only 2 ply and seemed pretty easy to puncture. What I did pick up was 4 Titan 589 M/Ts, I know they are a little rougher ride but I would gladly sacrifice that for the 6 ply rugged construction, long life and agressive tread design. So anyways, I got my 2 rear tires off the rims and found that the previous owner put tubes in the tires... So my question is, would you put the tubes back in the new tires or install valve stems and go tubeless? Also I'm pretty sure it wont be a big deal but I purchased 24x8x11 instead of 24x9x11 because thats all they had in stock. In case anyone's wondering, yes it was a huge pain in the ^%$ taking the old tires off the rims but I found a trick that works alright. Leave just a touch of air in the tires and drive the front tire of your truck over the tire just beside the rim. Pops off with no trouble at all.

I would put valve stems back in them and do away with the tubes.

No, that won't hurt anything, just an inch narrower.

No pics of them installed just yet. I only have the old rear tires off at the moment. Took me forever and a day just to do that. I would've just taken them to a shop to demount/mount but I want to take a few bends out of the lip of the rim, sandblast, and paint before I put the new tires on. I'll be taking them to a shop to put the new tires on after the rims are all ready. I dont particularily like the idea of spraying ether into my brand new tires and exploding them onto the rim. And these tires are so tough I know a ratchet strap and 25 psi of air aint gonna do it.
