Many different 105-level gravel and cyclocross bikes come with Alexrims ATD 470 wheelsets. The rims are advertised (on a huge, ugly, tricky-to-remove sticker) as being tubeless ready. That's like saying that a house that is only framed is dwelling-ready. The interior profile is poor for tubeless tape, and the profile also makes it difficult to get a tubeless valve to work.

The wheels are decent clincher hoops, but these aren't the wheels you are looking for if you want to set up tubeless.
