Need Tire Help Please

So I bought a tire from Revzilla but it was tubeless and now I find out the original tire is tube type. I don't wanna do a conversion. I also don't wanna buy a bunch of new equipment at this point as I am PO right now.

Can someone please give me a good place, preferably in Northwest Houston, that's not too expensive, where I can buy a tire and have it installed on a wheel?

Nothing to convert. Just use the new tubeless tire you bought. Ok to install it with a tube.

I think the advice is to treat a tube inside of a tubeless tire as a detraction. Here’s a good long article about tires: https://www.revzilla.com/common-trea...u-need-to-know

So imagine your tire as just slightly less performance wise.
