Re: Tubed tires

Just take a close look at the valve stem, they are entirely different. Tubeless stems are very securely attached thru the hole in the rim with an air-tight sealing lip on both sides and thus are fixed in position; tube-type stems are part of the tube and if you release enough air pressure you will be able to very easily push the valve stem in thru the hole in the rim.

CAUTION - if tube type, don't push the stem all the way in or you'll curse like h... and probably have to dismount the tire to get the stem back into the hole. If you have tubes, it's worthwhile buying one of those special little tools to prevent "loosing" the valve stem inside the wheel while mounting tires and tubes.
