Always a tube is required on all BMW wire wheels. The wired wheels are a better ride.

If you are going off road always carry a front tube at least as it can be used for both wheels or a spray can of tube repair.

There are very good small tire compressor's which will run of the bike battery or power outlet.

If you have the other wheels do not let the tire pressure down as the wheels bend easy when you hit a rock and they are hard to repair as they are very hard alloy/metal.

I could never bend any BMW wire wheels.

Hi, sure those spoke wheels are tubeless. The spokes are fitted on the edge of the rim. No leak possible, because the holes are on the outside of the tires.

That will make it good for those that are looking for an everyday warrior for daily commutes in the city and for road trips out far. And we know how horrible some city street are.

Thanks for the tube tip kiwi.
The rims on the BMW scrambler trims are different but the tires are the same. Guess if you plan to take it off road you'll need to get a new set of tires.

Smart move, they know a good portion of riders will remain on nice roads but of course carrying on the off-road image is what they ultimately want.

Not specifically off road, more multipurpose.

Yeah that's a good category since does sort of do it all.
