Hutchinson Bulldog CX

So I ordered these without thinking the other day on Steepandcheap.com. They were really cheap and I needed some tires so I didn't really read much into them.

I've read around but can't find too much about these paticular tires. Would I be able to run these tires on my Mavic Open Pro Clincher rims? What do I need to run the tubeless setup?

Also, from what I've read, you can run this with tubes as well? Will it work on the Open Pros?

Open Pro rims are not tubeless compatible.

you can use the stans kit to make any rim tubeless compatible. Otherwise you can just run them with a tube

make sure they're ust compatible (stronger sidewalls for less flop/more blow-off resistance). piranha cx came in a non-tubeless ready version as off last year (at least) and they're usually to be found at a discount to it's newer, tubeless sibling.
