    They actually held air by themselves without sealant. These are standard, non ust/tcs tires. Pricepoint had a $30 sale on Thursday and Friday on these and several other tires. No place locally really has any 26" tires anymore.
    I've blown tires off the rim with a air compressor before trying to get them to seat.I've noticed that some tire beads are different, some are smooth and some have ridges.I have also noticed if the tire is warm (From sitting in the sun) they seat better.The tires are supposed to seat without sealant, the sealant is just for punctures.

    On the laser disc rims I converted, I needed the sealant for the bead.

    Mountain Biking is 80% mental, 40% physical, and 20% skills... and that may add up to more than 100%, but I don't know.. I hit my head on a tree this weekend.

    you should go with tubeless . Good decision. Use kenda tubeless tire. Before you should put gel on tire & fit to rim, because this gel protect your tire from leakage
