Please let me know if i got it right regarding tubless tires:
ust tyres - can be used on ust and tubless ready rims with or without sealant
tubless ready and conventional (normal) tires - can be used on ust or tubless ready rims with sealant and occassionally add sealant. thx.
-UST tires on UST rims are your only true sealant free setup.
-Tubeless ready rims may be UST compliant (Bontrager and WTB for example), may be tubeless friendly (Velocity and Pacenti), or may not meet any kind of standard (Stans and American Classic). The only rim I am aware of that a UST tire can be run on without sealant tubeless is the Bontrager TLR rims with the rim strips.
-Tubeless Ready tires can be run on UST and most tubeless ready rims with sealant. Some tubeless ready tires don't play well with the newer Stans and American Classic rims.
-Standard tires are not designed to run tubeless. However the Stans and American Classic rims are designed to run them tubeless with sealant. Some will work, some will not.
A taped UST-spec rim, such as the WTB Frequency, should not need sealant with a UST tire. That is the point of the UST bead shape and the sealing tape.
