    Weirwolf LT's on Arch rims?

    Has anyone had any time on this set up? I just ordered a set of weirwolf lt's and didn't notice that the recommended inside rim width is 21mm. The arch is 19mm. Will I be alright using them on an aggressive trailbike on these rims?

    Won't be a problem, I've run it on a Alex TD17 without issues, but you won't get the full potential of the tyre.

    I have Arch's and Weirwolf's.... but the Weirwolf's are actually on a set of Shimano XT Tubeless wheelset not the Arch's. The Shimano rims are only 23.5 wide (outer)- I have been running them for about 5-6 Months on a full rigid - no issues. I ride mostly rocky rooty XC so no super Aggro but I run about 210# with gear so I am not too easy on them.

    I can't say either way if the performance is better of worse compared to it on a wider rim but traction is great and no burping issues run tubeless w/stans-
    I Just wish I could ride more!

    I have one as a front tire on my FS and it holds up well. It's mounted up with Caffelatex and it holds air great. I am 180 and run it at about 28 psi on all types of CO terrain.

    I've been running WWLT on an arch for awhile now. Not only is it a great setup but I've had no problems whatsoever other than my normal personal shortcomings...

    You're good to go

    I've run a WW LT on an Arch rim since January. Running tubeless at 22 lbs pressure, rigid, *lots* of rocks and roots, but no burps or flats. Ran the same tire on a much wider Salsa Delgado previously (tubed), and like it better on the Arch with the lower pressure.
