The correct answer is - no. Because of the bead design tubless tires are not compatable with tube type rims. Most likely you can get tubeless tires to seal at the beads and hold air, if you want to take the chance. If you loose a bead while riding, loss of air is very rapid. It is your life and your decision to make. I have seen it done. I will not do it.

I've got a home brewed tubeless set up on my 03. Excel rims, same as SM stockers. I have been through 3 sets of tires with out losing any psi at all. No problem with beading on the rim. I have ridden aggressive street, dirt/fire roads, jumps, and general hooliganism, without fault.

Ultimately it is a personal decision, but it has worked fine for me. Better than with tubes, actually.

Bring on the flames. :thumbsup:
