Tip: In order to protect the filaments tape, we recommend putting an additional layer of electrician tape over it or a layer of rim strip. 

How to choose your tape or rim strip to make your tire tubeless-ready?

In this table we will show you the 3 options available from X-SAUCE to you can choose the one that best fits your needs.
 
The rim bed should look like this:








To choose the right rim strip kit for the width of your rim bed you can do this by measuring the rim width from the outside.
 


In this table we will show you the 3 options available from X-SAUCE to you can choose the one that best fits your needs. 

1. To choose the width of the right kit for your rim, you can do it by measuring the width of the rim strip.  To do this, it is best to disassemble your wheel, remove and measure the tire's rim strip, provided it covers the bed of the rim well. Measure it on a flat surface, because if you do it on the rim itself, being concave, the measurements will not be correct. If your wheel does not have a rim strip, cut a piece of paper a width that appears to fit and set it into the rim, adapting it to its concavity, checking if the width is correct or needs fewer or additional millimeters. 

2. A second option is to measure the width of the rim bed, adding one or two millimeters to compensate for the concavity. This option will only give you an approximate measurement.

3. Another option is to do it by measuring the approximate width of the rim from outside: For rims from 20 to 24 mm wide, use kit with rim strips 20 mm wide. For rims from 25 to 28 mm wide, use kit with rim strips 23 mm wide. For rims 29 to 35 mm wide, use kit with rim strips 25 mm wide. For rims over 35 mm wide, use kit with rim strips 27 mm wide.

 

Does the air not leak out with only adhesive tape and a valve tightened by hand?

Once you install the tape and valuve, you can mount the tire and test by inflating the tire.
But until you add the sealant liquid it won´t be perfectly air tight. The sealant will perfectly cover all holes and micropores that lead to slow leaks.

How does it cover the holes in the rim?

With tubeless ready tape. There are a number of options:
This is the cheapest but least durable of all options
Clean the rim bed well. Apply 2 rounds of filament tape as you would normal rim tape but tensing slightly to avoid any bubbles and for the tape to adapt to the concave rim bed.Now place any rim tape over the filament tape to prolong its durability. 

Instalation tip:

Once you have applyed the tape or rim strip, which ever type you use, mount the tire and tube and leave inflated for a few hours or overnight.   This will ensure that the tape or cover adheres to the rim bed properly. The next day, desmount the tube and finialize the tubeless-ready process.
