Got my front XRP Pro to convert simply with a stan's conversion rubber rim strip. Couldn't get the rear to convert for some reason. Tried 3 diff tires. Front tire lost its seal during transportation and I put a tube in and haven't bothered to set it tubeless again.
I first taped up the rim bed used a tubeless valve, tubeless ready tires and Stans sealant. This worked horribly. The tires would burp out all the air when ever I hit a rock garden. The Vuelta rims just don't hold the tire bead tight enough. So I went to using stans rim strips and they worked great. So if you are going to do ghetto tubeless with a split tube it should work well.
