Is it OK to put a tube in a tubeless tire?

Short answer is a tubeless tire can be used with a tube but not the other way around. Nothing wrong with putting a tube in a tubeless tire. Aside from that, have you checked the valve stem and rim/ tire bead seats closely for leaks.
Can I put a tubeless tire on a tube rim?
Can you put a tubeless tire on a tubed wheel? You’d have to seal everything up with either some goo or a rubber liner to make the wheel airtight (it probably won’t stay airtight). More importantly, the tubeless tire’s bead will probably not seat properly and seal on the tube -type wheel’s rim.
