    IRC road tubeless tires

    Good Morning: I'm new to the forum, & am looking for some assistance.
    Iím ready to go road tubeless, & have decided on the IRC brand, but Iím stuck between choosing which IRC tire to go with. IRCís US distributors were not exactly helpful, as they didnít have any experience riding on the tires, so Iím hoping the riders out there have ridden them & can help.

    I ride in the metro NY area, & the roads are not always in the best shape & road debris is always an issue. I do not race, but like a lighter, grippy tire geared more towards dry conditions, as I try to avoid riding in the rain.
    So which tire should I go with?
    Roadlite-all around performance
    X-Guard-xtra puncture protection or
    Formula Pro Tubeless light
    thx in advance for your input-safe riding

    I'm not tubeless, but since I am familiar with NYC riding... imo, I would go with X-guard, then Roadlite.

    2009 Specialized Rockhopper Comp 29er upgraded to SRAM X9 with 1x10 and Stan's Arch EX rims and tubeless.
    2013 Cannondale CAADX-6 Tiagra with 9-speed SLX RD to run 11-32T cassette and Stan's Alpha 400 rims and tubeless

    I live in Japan and ride the tubeless RBCC's. Given your parameters, definitely go with the X-Guard, IMHO!
