I have a 2012 Heritage and will be needing new tires soon. I don't know if I have the new rims that seal the spokes. How would I be able to tell or is that not a standard feature but an upgrade? Thanks.

Your current tires should say if they are tubeless or not.

But only if you ask them nicely, otherwise you'll have to read it on the side of the tire.

I guess talking tires weren't an option on your year's model. :thumbsup

Most any new cycle tire you buy now is tubeless. The rim is what needs the tube if it has spokes.
If the air valve is rubber the rim most likely has a tube in it.

I always thought I wished for a tubeless tire on my spoked wheels so I could use fix a flat to limp for help when I got a flat.

But, I'm telling you what, my tubed tires' pressure is a constant. I've added a pound or so of air in each tire maybe twice in 27k miles. My only guess is it's because they're tubed. They just don't weep air. At all.

It'll suck in a flat situation, but it's kick ass not chasing air pressure every couple weeks.
