Are those the wide rims like the Hed C2 wheels?fallzboater said:I'm using the new Tubeless Ready Piranhas now with Stan's Plus Four strips on Velocity A23 rims, but not much experience, yet.
I'm surprised. I though that would be an ideal tubeless set up.thomaskrap said:I have the newer version of the Bulldogs and they won't seat right on a Stans 340 rim setup. I've tried everything from soap and water to stretching them out with tubes. Half of the bead is still severely uneven up and down. Anyone have any suggestions for this? I've tried everything and nothing seems to be working. Either way, I hope this isn't the new carbon bead causing this.

Attempted to mount them and the bead was unbelievably hard to seat (had to dig out a Koolstop Tire Jack to get the bead over the Rim Edge). Once mounted I tried and tried to get the beads to seat (Floor pump and Air Compressor but could not get them to seat). I had no problem getting the tire pressure up to 80 PSI but the Bead would stay in the middle of the Rim. After continuing to use the compressor the tire bead basically snapped (most likely from the aggressive nature of the tire jack) and the tire blow off the rim. It appears that the bead broke leading to the failure.
I went back to my old Bulldog and had no problem mounting it with a simple lever and getting it to seat with my floor pump.
It would appear, at least with Stan ZTRs, that the Carbon bead makes things too tight to get them mounted.
