Off road then use the thickest heavy dity tube you can get, 4 and 5 mil. Street then not so much of a concern. Tubliss isn't all that plus about $100 per wheel. At 20 psi then not too much of a concern for pinch flats.

Should have bought tubes with the tires, suplier could have recomened a size for you.

The shinko 244's are a "tube type" tire. Tubeless tires have an inner liner made of butyl rubber that seals the tire and eliminates the need for a tube. So, yes, use a tube. You can order them by your tire size. The front and rear on your sm will most likely use the same tube.
