VO Diagonale tubeless?

Has anyone attempted to set this rims up tubeless? Iíve got two wheelsets built with them, and Iím waging a war against the local goat heads.

Thank you!

Does running tubeless help with goat heads? I thought it was for running lower pressure without pinching.

Yes, generally small punctures like cactus spines and goat heads seal up and allow you to ride on.

I have my doubts it would work, but go for it. If the beads don’t fit the rim bed tightly you may want to use extra layers of the tubeless tape.
