    Another ? on the XT M775 Wheelset

    I just got the rims yesterday. What should I buy to seal the tires to the rims? Should I buy the stans no tubes sealant with rim strips, tape, and sealant?

    Do I need a burst of air to get the tires pumped? I tried using my floor pump and got no where.

    If you are using a UST tire, you need nothing else. If you are using a TLR tire, you need sealant (probably). If you are using a regular tire, it's a crap shoot. I've had success with a non-UST Maxxis Ardent using only sealant, but I needed an air compressor to seat it. I have no experience with rim strips, but I guess some tires might need it. You definitely don't need any tape since the rim has a solid spoke bed.
