    Michelin Comp 32 2.8" tires & Intense Mag 30 rims - Tubeless?

    Hello all,
    I have a set of Michelin Comp 32 Soft 2.8" DH tires on a set of Sun Intense Mag 30 DH rims. Does anyone know if I can convert my wheels to tubeless with this tire/rim combination? And if so, how should I go about doing it?
    Thanks in advance.

    Call Stan and ask about your rim width, though.

    Unless it's some ancient model, it's tubeless.

    Does your sidewall have the term "Nagesti" or even tubeless UST on the sidewall? The last one I bought was at least a year and a half ago, and it was marked this way. Even if it's not, I guarantee you this tire is beefy enough and with a strong enough bead and carcass to easily run tubeless. I've only run this tire on the front. I've used a WTB 30mm Dual Duty rim and even stuck it on a Rhinolite--seems like it'll go on just about anything except maybe a very narrow XC rim. It's always been run tubeless and may be the best tubeless tire candidate out there. The dang thing's a motorcycle tire--almost. You can easily run that tire on just about any rim wide enough with one of Stan's slightly wider DH strips and some Stan's sealant. I had to use the wider strip on the WTB rim because of its width. Go to Notubes.com to see how it's done--it's easy. I haven't run a tube in any of my 3 bikes since October 2001 when Stan's was just a homemade deal with some hobby shop latex. Stan's new sealant is better and not as messy as the old latex formula.
