    Tubeless with weinmann xm 280?

    My wife just got a bike with Weinmann XM 280 wheels and we'd like to set it up tubeless. I started to tape it up but then noticed some odd little holes in the rims near the sidewalks. Anyone have any experience with these sealing up rims like these?

    Bump... does anyone know if a couple pairs of 2-2.5mm holes in rim are going to make it hard to seal up? The tape I have isn't wide enough to cover them, I would have to do one wrap of tape on the left side, and another on the right.

    I should say though that I'm still interested in giving it a try. Maybe we need to post a picture of the rims with those odd little holes and see if anyone has done anything similar with other rims?
