    1. Price.
    2. Width.
    3. Tubed or tubeless ready.

    What did I win ?

    Well unless it's specified, no.

    It must say UST or Tubeless or something similar or clearly specified by the manufacturer to be run tubeless.

    I don't think you could run a standard clincher type tire tubeless with great results or overall reliability. Maybe, but I'm not sure.

    Edit :

    From Tioga USA website, they said for the Psycho Genius 26" tire that UST Options are :

    2.10" - 680g (folding)
    2.30" - 735g (folding)

    So by that I guess they make a UST 2.3" tire. But they may also be a standard 2.3" tire, so be sure to get the right one.

    Search the forum, someone posted up a good review on the 2.1 & 2.3 differences.

    IIRC, the 2.1 knobs were bigger and they set up tubeless real nice.

    This does not answer the 2.2 UST question, but gets you some info.
