I bought some Continental Mountain King 2.2 supersonics and was trying to mount them tubeless on my mavic crosstrails which are tubeless ready, but could not get them to inflate.:madmax: Is trying to inflate non tubeless as tubeless normally difficult. Also are inflating UST tire easier?

If I am correct, the SuperSonics use the lightweight sidewalls, which have been known to not convert to tubeless very well. If you do get them to air up, keep an eye on them. Not the best way to enjoy a nice day on the trails.

You didn't mention if you were using sealant- that would be essential for these. Other people have got them to work tubeless successfully, though a rim strip with plenty of yellow tape underneath it might be easier than a UST rim.
