    Depends on the rims, some require the tubes, the tires, do not necessarily require them. From experience the tube is cheaper in the event of a nail or something like that (just had to put a new tire on a bit early thanks to a friendly screw that wanted a ride.

    An old trick was "simulated" spoke wheels or spoked wheels with epoxy/sealer poured into the drop center. Downsides...of course: Spokes could loosen and no access to nipples, weight, a layer of epoxy in there adds unsprung weight and if not applied thick and evenly could eventually leak anyway...but they sure look good and are maintenance free.

    Not to be a smart-alec, but it seems that a simple answer to your question would be to call the dealership and ask them.
