So I'm looking for a new front tire for my 72 Honda cb350. The manual calls for a 3.00-18 tube type. After a decent amount of searching I've found some IRC GS-11 tube type tires that fit my size. I found these through smalltires.com. Now my question is, do these tube type tires come with a tube? I figure they should, but every website I've been to is vague when it comes to this. Is it normal for online tube tires to come with tubes?
Thanks,
George

Never seen a tire come with a tube in all my 40+ years in riding and selling.

What is a rubber rim strip? I do have spoke wheels and just purchased a tire and tube in the right size.

Oh! I discovered this as I was changing the tire and tube. It makes a lot more sense now. The one on the rim seemed to be in OK condition so I left it on there. Was that a good decision?

dont forget the rubber strap thinger that goes arond the rim on the inside of the tire as well ! it protects the tube from the spokes .
