I have a set of Stans ZTR Arch wheels, with the yellow tape and stem method. Works great. I emailed asking about using the same method on my DT Swiss 5.1d wheels. the reply I got was "Only our rims are designed to be used with the yellow tape and valves. All other rims require the rubber rim strips in order to be used tubeless."
I asked the question after I had already done it :nono:
~100 miles on the front wheel like this. 2.35 Kenda Kinetics, not tubeless version. No problems. 30lb Nomad
However....I made a small tech course at my house, and after about 4 drops from 36" or so @ 30psi, the front burped 10 psi on impact. But it sealed and rode away fine. After inspection, about 16" of the bead on the left side was covered in Stans Sealant :thumbsup: Take it for what its worth, but most of my riding seems to be Ok with this setup. I will be rebuilding my ZTR front wheel so it will work with my 20mm axle, then running those.
