I use tubes with my Kelsey Hayes wire wheels. I also put additional gaff tape on rim "nipples". Hard to get bead on chrome rims.

Subject: <VV> Wire Wheels Need tubes?
I bought a set of Clark's repo wire wheels. They were vague on whether I needed to use tubes. My tire shop said we couldn't use tubes in radial tires, and they were not needed since the wire wheels had a rubberized material covering the nipples of the wires on the inside of the wheel. So they installed them w/o tubes.
Woke up this morning and one wheel is completely flat.
Is this just a fluke to do I really need tubes?
