    Can you run a fork boot and still run tubeless

    I did a search and no luck.
    I have a maxxis Ikon that i have ridden less than 10 times and i tore the sidewall on a ride last night

    I am tempted to put a park tire boot over the rip and try and go tubeless again. Tires are ridiculously expensive and I am unemployed so i really want to try it but I am guessing once i hit the tire with the air compressor up to 60-70 psi that the sidewall will herniate and I am back to square one.
    Any experience or input?

    1) don't go anywhere near 60-70 psi.
    2) i've done it without issue, though your success is going to depend on the tear and how well you make the repair
