DONT USE SOAP!!!!!!!!! cause when it gets in side, that will cause the tube to spin easily inside the tire which = ripped off stem...LiquidZuma said:^^ a crap load of dishsoap all over the tube. its a real mess but your tube will slip into the correct place once you start inflating

normally if you buy a tube from a store they will install it for free

But seriously, why do you need tubes on billet wheels? Billet = one piece so there should be no need for a tube. Just put a valve stem in each one and air it up. You won't have to worry about a pinched tube again.
thatll do it for sure....FastMC said:Douglas billet wheels are not meant to be run tubeless ! There is no lip on the bead part of the rim. Your asking for trouble trying to run them tubeless. If you use saopy water on a bare aluminum rim, use it sparingly, it will corrode the aluminum once it's trapped in there. Put some baby powder on the tube and a little honda spray polish or a little silicone spray on the tire. put a little air in the tube to keep from pinching it with your irons.
