    Any tubeless 27.5" front wheels that are 9mm quick release

    Building a 27.5" bike, and made the mistake of getting a fork with 9mm qr rather than 15mm thru and I am sort of regretting it. I have a normal dt Swiss x1900 spline rear wheel which is great and set up tubeless. Does anybody know of any good front wheels that are tubeless and 9mm * 100mm, or better yet a 15mm * 100mm that comes with the correct end caps? Thanks!

    Perhaps mavic stuff. Its cheap to get endcaps for their 15x100 as i recall.
    Lots of dirt cheap mavic 27.5 15x100 front wheel out there. At least in EU.

    Then I would check first chainreaction and then wiggle. Usually the latter is cheapest.

    You can probably get a mavic quest qr from 2015 for like 40 pound or so but its 19mm iw and not tubeless ready but will work tubeless if you fight for it. Dirt cheap but imo a stretch.
    Xa elite is like 110 pounds is 25iw but it's really really good wheel. Here you have to add cost for endcaps.

    I'm sure there are x1900 15x100 front wheels on the used market you can swap end caps or use and adapter. Any 15x100 ta can be made to be old school qr.

    He can get a 15mm to 9mm thru axle adapter and use a 9mm RWS, which is way better than a 9mm QR.

    I have a couple of those^^, and one of these (Linked below) because I had 15mm end caps for one set of Hope hubs.

    Could do, Ive looked into it and a lot of wheels come with 9mm end caps aswell, meaning I can still use the wheel when I upgrade my fork to a 15mm in the future

    You can swap caps on dt hubs easily. My advice though would be to swap the fork for a through axle. QR is super flexible and not great for a suspension fork and disc brake imo.

    I looked up your wheels, the back is either 22.5mm or 25mm internal width, 29". So to more or less match the rear...

    RaceFace AEffect SL 29" Mountain Front Wheel
    $90, 24mm internal width, 15x100mm


    If you want to stay with 9x100 quick release:
    SHIMANO WH-MT15 29" Quick Release Aluminum Clincher Wheel
    $110, 25mm internal width, 9x100mm
