    Alexrims RHD double wall trims can accept Folding or tubeless tires?

    Can Alexrims RHD Double wall trims accept tubeless or folding tires? There is no serial number or part number on them, just this sticker, I checked the Alexrim website but it doesn't provide much information.

    They can definitely accept folding tires. Tubeless - you might have to go the DIY route since it doesn't specifically state they are tubeless although no guarantees as they might not have the "hook" to catch the bead of the tubeless tire.

    any 29" tire will fit on that rim with a tube. because they are so narrow, though, you won't get the best performance out of a modern wide tire. 17mm is road bike territory! I won't be too confident about a specific number, but I would think that a 29x2.0 or 2.1 tire would be as large as I would want on that pencil-thin rim.

    tubeless will be another story. you'll need to make a rim strip out of layers of tape and maybe a split tube. it will require a lot of trial and error. this might end up being a giant headache for you.
