    27.5 and Stans Rims...tire 4 tubess but w/o leaking-casing syndrome

    further searching i found my answers, wanted to know a good xc tire that fits on stans with no hassle, is light, and doesn't sidewall weep...

    so more searching by me, renders this thread is useless,

    Schwalbe Racing Ralph Snakeskin.

    Also with what sealant? Orange Seal has worked best for me.

    was going to use the least amount of stans possible. I want light but not '1 time use only light' I hope it lasts as long as the tread as far as sealing and not weeping from thin sidewalls.

    I have normal RaRa's now, with tube. then those wear out will go for the Maxxis since I had not read about them before, or if I like RaRa performance with tube, will get the tougher SS RaRa's. I am not sure about the RaRa life and performance on squishy terrain and wet roots....it will be a little while before I switch to tubeless, just want to be prepared with all the stuff I need so I can jump in any time.

    thanks

    The thing with Schwalbe is that they have pretty soft compound. They will easily get beat up by hard surfaces like rock or pavement/concrete.

    If u r just riding on rootd and soft dirt then they should last but keep them off pavement/concrete (specifically the rear).

    Depending on your climate u will typically have to re-add sealant every 2-3 months. The smaller amount of sealant u have in your tire, the faster it will dry up. You'll have to keep an eye on it to make sure u r not totally dry and end up with a flat situation since u had no sealant to seal it.

    If u have tires with thinner and more pourus sidewalls then I would highly recommend orange seal over Stan's as it is more robust and will add a latex layer on the inside. I typically see Orange Seal seal up new mounts more quickly and reliably than other sealants.

    thanks again


    yeah I bet the RaRa's are gonna melt on me then. A typical ride is 4 miles pavement or 8 miles pavement, then trails...and i seek rock on trail...then 4 or 8 miles back as fast as I can go....love grinding up rock faces reefing on the handlebars. Oh well RaRa is a race tire not a -all season- ...it'll be fun to use them once my current tires go bald
