    tubeless on DT 5.1D?

    Is the 2.5" Maxxis Dominion DHF front and rear on DT Swiss 5.1D rims a good tire/rim combo for ghetto tubeless?

    I did ghetto tubeless on my 5.1s with no issues It was quite easy. Just put a strip of Velox rim tape (or somthing similar) under the rim strip to take up the deepish rim cavity. I can't comment on the Maxxis tire though.

    thanks. I've heard Maxxis tires are good for the conversion. glad to hear the rim should work out too. I'll give it a shot.
