Wanted to post this. Just gave my buddy my older pair of Stans Alpha 400 wheels. Theyhad Specialized Captain CXs on them but they were worn and he had a new pair of Maxxis Raze tires. Install was pretty easy and so we set out for ride. About 100 yards into the ride, the rear tire blew off suddenly with ensuing carnage. Tires were at40 psi when we left and the bead was evenly seated. Some sites say these are ok tires to run tubeless and some say not; obviously I think there are better choices

when I install tubeless... I don't ride right away. I give it about a day to be safe for sealant to do it's stuff

plus, I personally don't mess around with with tires not meant for tubeless.... especially when there are warranties that forbid the use of sealant.... I had cst tires on my mountain bike which I liked.

The only set up that I have been able to get true burp proof is using a Bontrager Duster/ Rythm rim and rim strip. I run the Raze on my gravel bike tubeless with pressure between 35 to 50.
For cross training...I run the Raze or Clement PDXs at around 22 to 28.
I always use tubulars for racing.

on other notes I ran my beater Vittoria Tubulars, file tread rear chevron front in rocky, rutty terrian with a couple mud patches. At one point I was running them under 30 psi but I was bottoming on a lot of the stones so I upped to around 45
