It makes a difference on the regular RhinoLite or the XL Rhinolite. The regular and original Rhinolite was a wider rim. The later Rhinolite XL is a narrower rim. I have both, and they use different rim strips. You need to determine which strip you need to match which rim you have. Here's a pic of both.ronny said:If so how well does no tubes work on Rhyno lites?
Thanks for the input.
Depending where you live and the temperature during the summer, the most freqent you need to recheck the sealant is about once every 2 months--this mainly during higher summer temps. Checking is easy, because all you have to do is unseat a small portion of the bead and peek inside. If needed, then you just pour about 3oz in and close up the bead again. Either Rhino rim works very well with a Stan's setup. I've been using non-UST Mich. Hot S models in the 2.2 and 2.5 for a couple of Bullits and a couple of FSRs with bulletproof results. There are lots of other models of tires that works well too. Two of the other mechanics at the shop are using them on big hit styles bikes too with no problems whatsoever.ronny said:I guess what I want to know now is it a worthwhile upgrade on a heavy freeride/trailbike. Do you need to refill the tires frequently?
I'm guessing you're asking which is the regular and which is the XL Rhino. The older rim with the red Michelin and the "SUN RIMS" logo is the regular Rhino. The one with the black tire is the Rhino XL.DiRt DeViL said:Which is which? Inquiring minds want to know.
You should probably just measure the external width of the rim. XLs are 27mm wide and regular Rhynolites are 30mm. I'm not really sure if the 30mm Rhynos are even available anymore.DiRt DeViL said:What are these? XL's or Regular.
The older 30mm Rhynolite uses the wider strip. I have the wider strips in that one pictured with the red Michelin.vermont said:Tubeless rim strip with Valve Stem for 27-34mm Downhill rims - $25.00/each

your call....actually a call to Stan may help but i think either of these will work
