Have Mickey Thompson claws on the Mav. 2 have slow leaks in them. goes completly flat in around a week. is it possible to put tubes in the tyres to stop slow leaks, have checked for mud in the bead and puncture marks but nothing obvious stands out

Remember to check for any stickers on the inside of the tyre before putting the tube in, or you'll get a flat pretty quick from rubbing. Many tubeless tyres have these stickers.

Cheers.

The answer from me would be to not even consider it. Surely if they were dunked in a large trough you will find the leak.
I've had really small leaks in the past and my local tyre gent has always found them.
You only need a nail or bolt or anything for that matter to piece the tyre with a tube and it is instant flat, that's not very funny at 100k/ph.
At least tubeless will goes down slow, For safety sake I would never consider it.
