im going to say no, but im sure there is someone that knows a way how to!

I wouldnt recommend it though because of the lower tire pressure that you tend to ride with in an off road environment. but why not install it with a tube any way?

I've used a tubeless tyre (with a tube) on my rear wheel for years (I use a Michi X11). It works just peachy. I also use an ultra-heavy duty tube which does seem to wear a bit (it looks pretty scuffed when I've had the tyre off to replace it (every 22 months or so) - but hey I'm on my second tyre in 3 years and I'm still on the same inner tube so it can't be all that bad.

Because I run very low pressures I used to get tyre-creep (sounds like a description of one of the apprentices at my local bike shop), but I fixed that with an extra rim lock and some self-tapping screws. Actually the screws probably weren't necesary but I did not want to keep breaking the bead after every ride just so as to re-align the tube.

Meat (trials tyres ROCK) bomb........
