Tubeless issue / start over?

Hi All,

New to tubeless but the bike i bought has them.

Inflated the tyres a few times with no issues, a same psi inflate the other day it popped, but i dont know why.

Struggling to get the tyre back on. Was thinking of redoing them.

Current rims/tyres are: Maxxis 27.5x2.4, Blackjack 27.5 tubeless ready.

Think its worth buying new valves, sealant and tape? and is it easy enough for tubeless newbies?

Thanks

    What kind of pressure are you running at. I've had a few friends recently that have brought new bikes with tubeless set ups for commuting and had similar problems because they've over inflated. They assumed they could inflate like a road bike till rock hard. As regards anything tubeless have a troll through YouTube or cycleclinics tech pages.

    Hi, i cannot 100% remember but thought i had only got to about 20psi, it was definately nowhere near what i have done before, unless perhaps the pump wasnt reading properly. Do you think its likely i just popped the tyre off the rim or?
