Tubeless & other tire options: We offer the Stan's road tubeless conversion for these wheels and we recomend this is the ultimate tire choice for speed, reliability and comfort. Many of our clients are reporting no flats for the entire life of the tire. The Hutchinson Fusion 3 is a perfect all-rounder and the new Schwalbe Ultremo ZX promises to be the fastest most reliable tire on the road. Veloflex handmade cotton open clinchers are a nice option as well or if you are going for the tubulars the Vittoria EVO SCbrings back memories of old-school fast.
