Tires on '96 ACE 1100

I just purchased a '96 ACE 1100 and was wondering if the tires were tubeless or tube type tires? It has spoked wheels and I wasn't aware that you could have spokes with tubless tires. Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks vt700c

If you have spoked wheels (like the 1100ACE does) then you need tubed tires.

Thanks Labswine. That is what I thought. I bought it from a used car dealership and they said that they thought that all tires went tubeless in the '90s. Good to know.

Spoke wheels can be sealed so you can run tubeless tires have thought about doing mine tubeless is much safer.

Fixed that. It doesn't matter whether the tires are rated for tubes or tubeless, you can run either. But you've got to have the tubes -- or get your rims sealed.

This is right on.

Put tubeless tires on my buddies Road Star this fall with tubes in them.
