Hello everyone! I just received my new Bridgestone tubeless tires and I did buy tubes for them but- two questions.

1- The tubes I ordered arrived but the rear is a huge heavy-duty tube whose box is easily 2x larger than the front tube's. The rear tire is a 130/90x17 but the tube arrived is 110/90x17. Can I use it?

2- I know some guys run tubeless on these Comstars. My friend's 81 (I think) 750 bike with the same rims (but black) run tubeless... He says that so many people were leary to run tubeless (new concept back then) that Honda just used tubes for a while before people relaxed about tubeless...

The Spitefire II's are tubeless... What are my options?

I've just gone to goldwinginfo.com and it looks like the only difference must be that the 1000's just used tube-type tires on the same rim (besides the spoke flanges being rolled out rather than turned in).
