Clip Rims For Baby Moon

Can you mount a regular tire on a rim with clips or do you have to have a tube in there? When letting the air out of the tire to get the rim mounted on the axle will I have problems with the bead? I would like to run the clip rims with original baby moons, just not sure about them. Thanks for the help!

you just need to find a good set of rims with clips that aren't all rusted out and you should be able to run without tubes. Keep in mind when searching that these tires were run on many vintage trailers so they are usually pretty easy to come by.
