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?
