Hey all, 

I've got TCS rims... Panaracer responded directly to an email from me and said 'they CAN be set up tubeless..'  but... before setting them up and launching down hill at 50mph... I just want a little comfort... 

Has anyone had any luck with these? 

Thanks,  

JS

I have run one tubeless on Stans rims, but on the rear only. It worked well. But front tires receive more side loading so I can't comment on how it would work on the front. They do not have a tubeless bead so don't run the pressure too high.

I weigh 140lbs and I doubt they'd ever see 40psi, even with tubes. Maybe I'll just run them tubed. Which is kind of a bummer. 

Was the fear of rolling a front tire what stopped you doing your front? Or have you just not had a chance?

I had a knobbier tire up front. But in general if I run a non tubeless tire on the front I use a Stans rim strip. I once had a non tubeless tire blow off a rim on the front coming down a technical hill. Since then I don't risk it, the extra 50g of the rim strip is worth the safety for me. Plenty of people do run non tubeless on the front without a rim strip, so it can be done.
