Mavic 823's rims and Michelins, Kenda Blue grooves and Nevaegals, Highrollers and Minions are some of the choices recommendednosewheely said:i run mavic 219 disc rims on king hubs now. i am considering to go tubeless. what's a good freeride tubeless rim-tire combination? what are the cons of tubeless?
if you know what you are doing then it is easy....and works very well....all my buds got flats and I had white dots on my tire which sealed because some idiot put thorns all over the trail...08nwsula said:I see it as a bit of a hassle, but you can save some weight.
I've now run four different types of tires, both ust and non-ust, on my mavic crossmax ust rims. Every one of them has burped to some degree.I know SMT always talks about "burpage", but I think most riders who experience this are running too low a pressure and/or the wrong tire.
I've run the Ghetto rim strip system, a 24 or 20" tube and cut it down the center, put some stans in and seated, filled it up cut away the excess ruber from the tube and it was good to go. The system worked well. And the only reason I'm not running tubeless right now is that my brother took the Stans to college.TNC said:Addtionally, people often "poo-poo" the rim strip system. Anyone who's run rim strips on non-UST rims should be able to confirm how the tire bead and rim strip make an almost ungodly bond when done right.
I run about 28 the lowest and upwards to 35.......burbage got me on maxxis non ust tires.....but sometimes on the Michelins if you hit off camber you will see seapage marks at bead.......TNC said:.

you can run without but I wouldn't ...it is nice when you finish a ride and look at a wet spot on your tire and realize the sealant just sealed a hole the size of a pencilban said:Im waiting for a mavic ex823 wheelset and I have a maxxis High Roller 2,5 non ust laying around...so will it work with these rims??is it compulsory to use sealent(stan, slime, etc...)??
