I am thinking about converting a set of wheels to tubless using the Stans No Tube system. I know that tubless tires can be used, is there one tire manufacturer that works better than others? I have heard that the Stans No Tube goo will eat certain types of rubber (Continentals in particular). Anyone have experience with this stuff?

Edit:

Backtracking through the forum I found a previous post with the info I needed. Here is a link

No problems

I had Stans goo in a set of Continental Vertical protections and ran without any problems. I do have ust Crossmax SL wheels, but I'd assume with Stans rim strip and valve, it should convert the tires w/o a problem.

Eating rubber, never hear of that. Stans goo is essentially liquid latex, seems to be pretty inert from what I can tell.

Best performance so far has been with real UST tires. A little heavier, but seals up way faster and better than non-UST tires converted.

The problem here is amonia, it can attack the rubber. Not necessarily dissolve it, but weaken it substantially.
