Now when you say they are tube-type; do they have to have tubes?
I plan on using Staun internal beadlocks with whatever rims I end up with.
Jeff the difference between tubeless and tubed on these wheels is the size of the valve stem hole and a slightly different shape to the outer lip of the wheel. I have run the tube type wheels- tubeless with zero issues and I aired down to 10 psi with a 130.

I would imagine that somebody would be running down there at some point.
Like I said, I could meet somebody closer to the interstate west of Boston if that made RURR easier for somebody.

Also, I'm not in an incredible hurry though I could use the garage space and would like to put the money towards an Alisport full length intercooler.

Try to arrange something over the next month or two.

price drop to $600

Pre-Spring bump and price drop to $600

Also, I mistakenly wrote the tread depth as 16ths, instead of 32nds (surprised nobody called me out for that) tread is good though on all tires and no dry rot and are as clean as you see them in the pictures.

Most tube type rims do not have a safety flange to prevent the bead from moving too far inward on the rim. It has nothing to do with holding in air unless something pushes the bead to the center of the rim. This can happen when you are running low on air pressure, hitting a rock or pot hole hard enough to push the bead. Many people run these rims, with out a problem, while not using tubes. I personally, will not take a chance.

If you choose to run a tube make sure it is a radial tube. There is a difference.

Jeff, if you are planning on running the Stauns I would not see a problem using these wheels. The Stauns will hold the bead in place not allowing it to move to the center of the wheel. (acting like the safety flange, but better) You can get a larger valve stem to go into the hole if it has the larger diameter valve stem hole.

I ended up getting a set of the Wolfs right here in town!
Same kind, tubes, but with Stauns I didnt think I would need to worry.

Funny how the anticipation of springtime mud re-energized this FS thread!
