Does anyone use a Stan's rim on a daily basis with tire width between 1 - 1.5? If so, what's your tire pressure? I don't want to blow off my tire - most likely at 1.35 Schwalbe Kojak.

I'm running some cyclocross tires that measure out to 36mm (1.4") on Stans ZTR 29er rims. I usually race them around 30-32psi, but I have had commuter tires about the same size on the same rims at around 60psi and no problems.

My guess is you are looking to get them up to around 100psi? If that's true, this is of little help to you, but try them out at lower pressures. Still fast, and much more comfortable.

A bit late reply but it may help other people too...

For quite a while I've been running Schwalbe Kojaks 700x35mm at 60PSI on ZTR355 29er rims with no problems. I only used a yellow strip and two scoops of sealant.
With tubes you could safely run them at higher pressure.

I checked w/ Stan's and their only recommendation when running the narrower tires was to use tires with a wire bead. I ran some 32mm's for a year tubeless and never had any problems/concerns with the tire coming off of the rim (although I did blow a Racing Ralph off of the rim a couple months ago but that is another story).

What I did find though was that if you do puncture a tire when running higher air pressure (50-60 psi), it just blows the Stan's right through the tire and doesn't really seal the puncture. By the time the Stan's was doing it's job, the pressure was down to about 30. On two separate commutes last year I got tire punctures that the Stan's couldn't/wouldn't seal at a rideable tire pressure. I am now back to commuting on 2.1's.
