    Ritchey and Conti NON Tubeless on UST rims?

    I have been running non tubeless Hutchison tires on Crossmax wheels and have had great success. I have also had Larson TT's on there with good success. Anyone had any success running Conti, Schwalbe, or Ritchey NON Tubeless kevlar bead tires on ust rims? Let me know what you all think.

    Standard tires with tubes work just fine on UST rims.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    still running them tubeless though

    I am still running the hutchisons with stans and and wanting to explore running the ritcheys, schwalbes, and or contis tubeless with stans as well but I don't want to have to run UST specific versions of the tires. Thanks for your ideas though.

    I've attempted to use the Protection Contis tubeless....didn't work out too well as the sidewalls didn't seal up well. I'm still running them on the TR rims I have, but with tubes. They work just fine that way.

    I ran Conti Vapor Pro 2.1 tubeless, but I found them too easy to burp when my riding got more aggressive.
