Inner tube on truck tires that are meant to be tubeless

I got a small crack on a aluminum wheel on my truck ( 16 rock crusher wheels w/tube less- 33 bfg mud terrains ). it's on the lip , I took the tire out and grinded out any imperfection, applied 2 coats of bead sealer and let it air dried then inflated the tire on 3 increments up to 35psi. the wheel is holding it's own "THE TRICK WORKED" but I still want to build more confidence before taking her out wheeling again...
what could happen if I put a tube in it ?

--ps--
I can get the wheel cheap at work but that's not my question.

Nothing, I have put tubes on my offroad trucks for 20 years so that I can air them down for the rock trails and not worry about the tire leaking from the bead.

Re: Inner tube on truck tires that are meant to be tubeless

Cheap Beadlocks haha. So how does this work exactly? I mean how do you put an inner tube in a tire that is not meant for an inner tube? Thanks for the info, sorry to thread jack burnnxs but I think this is good idea and will allow me to air down without beadlocks(I don't have the cash for that yet!)

Just remove the original tire valve and install the tube and have the tire installed. Nothing special just like any other tire to rim install.

Re: Inner tube on truck tires that are meant to be tubeless

You just have to be sure to get a tube with a metal valve stem. The rubber ones wont poke through the hole in the wheel and will get sliced.

If it can't be fixed with a hammer, it's an electrical problem!

Re: Inner tube on truck tires that are meant to be tubeless

Nice ! Talking to one of the guys in the shop he told me he heard of it being done in hardcore off roader circles. It's just logical but I didn't know if it implicated any highway drive ability issues... SO MORE POWER TO IT !

Im calling big o tires or any local tire store for inner tubes Monday for sure.

aaronspeed do you know of any good sites to buy inner tubes with metal steams ?

Re: Inner tube on truck tires that are meant to be tubeless

They make a tube that they call an "Inner beadlock" that is essentially a heavy duty innertube that locks the bead from the inside against the outside edge of the rim.

Re: Inner tube on truck tires that are meant to be tubeless

The last tubes I purchased was from Quality Farm and Fleet that Tractor Supply Company(TSC) purchased in my area. I have had my tubes in my wheels for 6 years. Check the yellow pages in your area for farm equipment or speed shops. Jegs and Summit carries them, same tubes you use for slicks they just always charge more for them.
