    What did you use for a valve stem?

    However, mine wouldn't seat even with a tube. Blew out 3 tubes before i gave up and purchased the Dunlop and new tube at a dealer and let them install.

    ? the tube has a stem. Then when you remove the tube , slip in the tubeless valve stem and re-inflate immediately . And at that point it is still a good idea to leave the valve core out, re-seat, then put the core in & inflate.

    Jimmylee I think you just got a bad tire. Stuff happens. I would not write them all off as impossible to mount based on one example. Lots of tires are tough to mount, but if one can't be mounted, it is simply defective. Michelin has been good at this game for a very long time.

    It was tubeless tire marked that if used on a tube-type rim to be sure to use a tube.

    I would bet that it would fit on a tubeless rim probably easily as any tubeless tire would.

    I can probably solve that mystery soon, can't I, Jim?
