yea. the tires are capable of being tubeless, but the rim is not. Ive got those same tires on my 05. I'm a big fan. Great for pavement...wet or dry.

I thought it was just me, These were the first motorcycle tires I ever mounted and were very difficult. It took me like 2 hours and I was beat . I do like them so far
