    Maxxis 22C Radiale tires on Stans Notubes Alpha 340 ZTR

    I am having a terrible time getting Maxxis 22C Radiale tires to stay sealed on Stans Notubes Alpha 340 ZTR rims. I have tried Stans valves, as well as Enve valves, and Enve rim tape. Does anyone have any experience with this combination.

    I thought those aren't tubeless tires.

    Perhaps they are not, although the packaging material that they came in indicated that they are. I first tried the 23 Radials, and they are defintiely not tubeless, so I sent them back to Western Bike Works (mounted but never ridden). I tried to get some definitive answers out of Maxxis....to no avail. I will say that the 22s have such a low profile, that they will only hold about 3/4 ounce of sealant before it spills over the bead. Also, the Alpha 340s are pretty wide which causes the tires to have an even lower profile.

    Funny. I was just researching tubeless options myself and found these same tires. Also thought they were tubeless till I read this blog review where he uses an inner tube.
    So much for that.
