    chipped rims

    I got a set of ArchEx's at the start of the year which I have been running tubed. Im now going to go tubeless.

    When I took of my tyre off I found one edge of the rim has loads of tiny chips out the paint. Is this going to cause any problems going tubeless? why would this happen to only one side?

    Shouldn't cause any problems for when you go tubeless. I'm running tubeless and my rims look similar from pushing the bike with flat tires & running not enough pressure. I have no idea why they are chipped on just 1 side. I thought it would be both sides with chips.

    after a closer look its on both, just worse on one. I'll attempt the conversion anyway.
