I want to drill i23 and i19 WT69 rims in order to use schrader valve. Will I have any problem with durability?

Nope. I drilled out my i23 last year and have about a year of use on them. So far, no problems.
I've been drilling out rims to Schrader for something like 20 years, I've never had a rim fail because I drilled it.

FYI if you drill it and use the no flats stems make sure a Schrader tube valve will fit...


I have never had presta's in anything, I drill all my rims.

I drilled out both my i25 Freq rims. I have a drill press so it was super simple. Just keep that hole straight. I uses 949 brand schrader valves.
There is very little amount of material removed.
RIDE!!!!!!
