FAQs - Frequently Asked Questions

Q - Can Comp(Tube-Type) or Race(Tube-type) tires be set up tubeless?
A - No. Comp and Race type tires are only made for use with inner tubes. If you want to run a tubeless set up, you need the Tubeless Compatible System (TCS) version of the tires.

Q - Which length TCS valve stem should I use?
A - All of our alloy rims work great with a 34mm valve stem. If you are using a deeper dish rim, like our Ci24 and Ci31 rims, then we recommend the 46mm long valve stem.

Q - Which width TCS Tape should I use for my rim?
A - WTB recommends using tape that is 5mm wider than your inner rim width. Most of our rims will have the inner rim width listed in the name (i.e. Frequency i23 uses 28mm TCS Tape).

Q - Can your Road Plus or Mountain Plus tires fit in my frame?
A - Due to the huge variety of frame designs out there, we can't guarantee frame fit based on the model name and bike description. We are happy to email tire drawings so you can measure your bike at home, or you can check the Road Plus Compatibility list for bikes that we have already verified fit on.

Do not set up Comp or Race tires as tubeless. Comp and Race tires REQUIRE the use of inner tubes.
