Tubes with V61's

Who runs tubes with their V61's? When I ordered mine this week Miller said these tires needed tubes. Just curious as to how people are running them. They are 16/6.50-8 on stock 300 series rims.

OK, thanks for the good info guys. I was a little surprised that he said I needed tubes, but I knew what kind of reputation he has here and over at WFM as well so I figured he wasn't just jerking me around.

Probably going to let the tire shop mount these. I tried to do my Tru Power's on the rear, but I couldn't even get the bead broke on the old tires. Any tricks for that? I don't mind hard work if it saves me money....
I attempted my first tire work today. Had a heck of a time getting the bead broke. Managed to tear the beads on both tires. Good thing they're junk anyway. Finally got them off, bent my rims a little bit, fixed that. Gonna have to sand blast them and re-paint them. It was a ton of work and not near as easy as Roy Rector made it look!

I need to figure out a way to hold the rim while doing this. Anyone have any good ideas?
