"Inner tubes are typically used, to ensure that the air does not suddenly leak catastrophically as the tire deforms under the stress of launching."
I was reading some stuff about drag racing, slicks to be exact and see that some drivers use inner tubes on the rears. It doesn't sound like a bad idea, even for every day driving too. Does anyone use them? And what's the up or down side of using them?

Were talking about bias ply slicks not Mickey ET radials. Drag radials dont' need tubes.

Not many people run tubes with slicks, I don't. Then again i'm running 18psi tire pressure. Tubes are heavier.

That's what I figured, I run 17psi at the track with my Nittos DR's. Thanks for the reply.......
