Tire trouble

I want to upgrade the tires in my bike to fit my riding needs. I've found that the shinko 705 fot both my style and my budget. However they are advertised as tubeless tires, and my wheels use tubes.

Can you run tubes in these? If not, any recommendations for tires that fit a 70/30 ish riding style that will not wear crazy fast?

You can run tubes in any tubeless tire that would fit on the KLR.

Hi Zube, check your rim strips when you change your tires.
