Heidneu K60 front tire says tube on one sidewall???

I have some new Heidneau K60 tires that were mounted on my bike last fall. In the process of getting my R1200GS adventure ready for summer I had to pump up the front tire which was completely flat from sitting over the winter. I found this slightly strange as the rear still had 36 psi of air left in it, but that's besides the point. While putting air into my front tire I noticed that on one sidewall it says "Tube" on it. The tire size is 110/80 B19 M/C 59T. I thought that size of tire was only available in tubeless but I can't find anywhere on the tire that says tubeless. The rear tire states this but not the front. Can someone shed some light on this? I tried looking it up but I came up with nothing.

Thanks in advance,

Moose

Well I have an update. There is in fact both tube type and tubeless versions available in this size. The dealer installed the wrong one and switched them for me today.

T is a really low speed rating, too.

Ya. I have a tubeless on my 1200gsa and loose about 8 psi a week on the front and very little on the rear. Combo between bmw unengineeering and bead design of the 60's

I looked at Heidneau's site and a T speed rating is 118 mph or 189 km/h. I guess IMHO that's not that low considering they are an on/offroad type of tire on a big heavy adventure motorcycle?
