no, they need to be tighter to hold the bead on to the rim
TUBELESS RIM TAPE
The tubeless rim tape is extremely user friendly and at the same time very high pressure resistant. Even on road bikes a single ply of tape is sufficient.
Tubeless rim tape + tubeless valves
We now have rim tapes and valves to seal conventional wheels for tubeless use. No need to invest in new and expensive wheels in order to enjoy the tubeless feeling.
You will find accessories for tubeless conversion here. >>
... after losing battle with tyre and rim.
It seems Schwalbe One is the tyre of choice, yet availability is a challenge.
On the MTB, Its pretty easy to use non tubeless tyres as tubeless, i.e. a little extra sealant and rim tape and it seals up nicely. Has anyone tried that with road tyres?
Admittedly, the sidewalls of non UST MTB tyres are "softer" or not reinforced, but that has not proven to be an issue ever.
It's only the third time that people ask the same question this morning... :roll:
Fair enough, expected as much as you obviously need pressure to seat the tyre, and when pressure goes it might roll off, which kind of defeats the purpose, I suppose.
How are you finding the wear rate?

Also found a review that says the Stans 340 are good for 105kg rider? Superstar components however only state 85kg. which is it?
UGO what would you recommend? I m looking for sub 1500 grams, Tubeless , aluminium clincher , with a tyre profile of 25mm for better comfort and less flats. My weight is 85 to 90kg. Not racing but want to hold my own in chain gang!
