Depending on your route and road, you could puncture a tire and not be able to fix it, a tube would be nice to have when all else fails.

Ask the experts here about road types and tire pressure,

I picked up a screw in an almost new tire. The mechanic recommended putting a tube in it. Said I loose no reliability, and I get to use the rest of that tire I paid good money for.

I haven't put a sh**ton of miles on it yet, but so far so good.
