“Cheap Option”

The Good: Convert to tubeless easily Fairly light Low price point Deep sidewalls keep tubeless tires on and don't burp off the rim

The Bad: Hard to get tires on and off (dual ply) because of the deep sidewalls

Overall Review:

These originally came on one of my bikes and I immediately converted them to tubeless with stans tubeless strips. I seated a dual ply 3C non-tubeless tire first try and didn't need to add anymore stans in the tire for a year. The deep rim walls are great at keeping the tire from burping off of the rim. I had 4 really bad flat spots on my rim and it still held tubeless with no issues. If you do end up bottoming out the tire to the rim you will most likely get a flat spot so I wish they were a little stronger. But for the price I'm not complaining. Great choice for a Fr/Dh rider on a budget or even a great spare rim to keep around.
