Are you referring to the metal tubes between the lugs?

Yes

Are the metal tubes between the lugs come standard with OEM ASS strap ?

No the tubes do not come with the straps

You normally get the one set with the watch only and have to switch them over when changing the straps

Do I must have tube

Do I must have tube ?
When I change to new strap without tube, it seem fit perfect?

Tubes

Prevent the screws from rotating from friction caused by the strap. Also creates a uniform appearance irrespective of small differences in the holes of each side of the leather.

So, you can use the strap without the tubes. Just keep an eye on the pins.

Well. . .

Wearing a PAM without the tubes can sometimes cause the lug screw to unthread itself because there is friction from the strap applied directly to the screw. Aftermarket tubes are easy to get a hold of, I'd pick some up. I always use the tubes.
