Ive bought a set of tyres from the bay, a set of NOS Michelin Wildgripper green tyres, one is normal tubed, the other a tubeless, question is can I use the tubeless tyre with a tube?

Yes. However the tubeless one may be a complete git to get on a normal rim :?

I've got a King QR15 axle that I converted from QR. Have a word with Mark from Evolution Imports. He was a really helpful guy and advised me in detail about hub spares. I'm sure he will be able to advise you on possible options.

King only do the large hub in 24,20,15 or the small hub in 15,9. Betd may do an axle to convert. There was a similar question asked on stw recently, may be worth searching on there
