    WTB Stout 2.3 with Stan's Flow tubeless... do I need sealant

    I'm thinking about pulling off my Racing Ralph for the Stout to see if I get better grip... I've been a little sketchy in the front with the RR. Current setup is tubeless and this will be my first time mounting tubeless... will the Stout require sealant? It's a China Stout.

    Thanks in advance...

    Yes. I don't know if I would run it tubeless w/ that tire though...do a search. I have heard of blisters forming when running that tire tubeless...I have not tried my Stouts tubeless.

    I have read a few posts about China Stouts, I am a little concerned. Can I try Slime or should I go with a latex? Thanks for the reply NC...

    if you're gonna go with it, get a latex based sealant - stans, caffelatex, slime pro, etc....Pure slime(or even mixed) will not seal up.

    Thank you once again... I may just try a different tire that i can expect to have success with. I appreciate your direction.
