screws yes... tubes no.
Ditch the extra unsprung weight and potential safty issue of a tube. Think about how fast a tube goes flat when you put a nail in it. Now do the same with a tire. That's why I look at tubes as a safty issue. The only down side is that you'll have to inflate the tires more often. say like once a week. Before you seat the bead of the tire and inflate it, take some dishwashing detergent and rub it inside the tire to clog the pores and you may not have to inflate as often.
You want the screws to hold the bead of the tire to the rim. Without the screws, the rim could spin inside the tire. When that happens the tire doesn't rotate. If the tire don't move, the car don't move.
