    WTB LaserDisc FR, UST?

    I've heard rumors about people putting Stans yellow tape and a valve in the rim and using it with tubeless with UST tires. The WTB site does not say anything about UST, but they look like a tubeless rim. Or are people just running them ghetto. What's the deal?

    They are not UST, but the WTB rims have an extra inner lip on the bead seat that really locks the bead of the tire in. Using UST or Tubeless Ready tires works very well IME. You can use Stans Yellow Tape, but the 1" wide Gorilla Tape works just as well for far less.
