I just bought a set of Maxxis Minion Super Tacky Tires 26/2.5, Specifically the DHF/DHR tires.

I also bought the STANS Tubeless sealant kit, however I did not notice and purchased the Stan's DH kit with the wider tape strips, so I THINK I need to return it to get the proper FreeRide or Standard size kit.

That being said, I am riding some DH this weekend and want to run the tires..... can i just run standard Tubes in the Maxxis Mininon tires this weekend? This may sound like a dumb question and if it is I apologize for not knowing but the reason I ask is because they sell Maxxis DH and Free Ride Tubes also.... so do I NEED those or can I just run my current tubes i'm running in my Michelin Grip R's? I thought it was ok, but figured I should double check they accept the same tubes, this is my first set of Minions. If I need to order tubes I need to do it today so I figured i'd check with the forum experts. But was not sure if those tubes are just thicker and recommended but not necessarily needed.

Thanks in advance for any help.

You can run your regular tubes.

The DH tubes are just thicker and therefore more resistant to pinch flats. Desirable, but not 100% neccessary.
