Re: Valve Stems Leaking - Why a tube in a tubeless tire?

When I got my '54 it had 4 flat tires. I went to get some cheapo tires to make it a roller again, and I discovered that 3 of the old tires had tubes. I just replaced them with regular tubeless tires. 3 days later 2 of the tires were flat. The problem was that rust scale on the bead surface was keeping the tires from sealing. Long story short, I bead blasted the rims, and painted them inside and out, and now they have held air for over a year without a problem.
