    Default Using Tubes With Stan's Rims

    I have a pair of Stan's ZTR Arch 29'r rims on my mountain bike. I'd like to mount some traditional road clinchers on them, skipping the sealant and using tubes. As you might expect, there's no information on Stan's site about going "backwards" to using tubes with his rims except a passing reference to using a tube in an emergency if you don't have sealant.

    Has anyone here done this?

    What dimension do I need to check in the wheel specs to inform my tire size choice?

    Thanks for your help

    MTB tires with tubes work no problem. Road tires and tubes? No idea, but I don't see why it wouldn't work.

    Any 700c road tire should work. Keep in mind that the rim width on that Arch rim is going to be about the same width as a 23mm road tire, so you may want to go with a wider road tire.

    No problem, I've mounted 28c road clinchers on Arch rims (for using my cross bike as a winter bike).

    Dont they have a max pressure of like 50psi or something? You'd blow that out of the water with a standard road clincher

    I don't see anything on the spec sheet that suggests this, but that's why I'm asking. I don't know for sure.

    There's tire volume at play in that 50 psi limit as well.

    Mountain bike tire at 50psi will blow off more times than not, usually taking a big section of the rim sidewall with it. Cyclocross tire at 35mm won't blow off even at 50psi+. Tubeless or tubed. Road tire at 28mm probably wouldn't have a problem at 90psi.

    Yeah... call them. I dont know about the pressure limit for sure. I just think I heard that at some point.

    There is a pressure limit, but like nathan mentioned it's dependant on the tire. I've had tubed MTB tires blow off just below 50psi (I was using it to set the tape).

    Haven't tried road tires on them. I'd call and ask. Or, just use some earplugs when you mount them!

    I called today. No problem with a 28 or bigger tire. My rims are "older" and the design reportedly will accommodate a tube and clincher provided I keep pressure around 80 psi. Just have to be careful not to pinch tube between tire and rim.

    Yeah those suckers can be tricky to mount and not pinch a tube. I remember putting cross tires on ZTR 355's and there was swearing involved. I think I only aired them up to between 50 and 60 psi. Larger volume tires have a lower max pressure.

    Good luck!
