    New question here. Standard non-tubeless Hutchinson Scorpion's with a Mavic 3.1 UST

    Has anyone used standard non-tubeless Hutchinson Scorpion's with a Mavic 3.1 UST rim? Is this tire strong enough to be used as tubeless, and will it seal to the rim (with Stan's of course)?

    Standard tires work fine on UST rims with tubes. I do not recommend DIY tubeless.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    As shiggy said, It'll work fine. You may want to put some weather stripping through the center channel to help with beading the tyre.
