Wider Tubeless Tire Suggestion

I'm riding tubeless a Lynskey Urbano with Cyclocross fork on Kinlin XR31T Rims (19 mm inner diameter) with Schwalbe G-one TL folding microskin 35 tires. I run 40 psi and have had a few flats. At higher pressures I think it's a little hard for sealant to work. I'd like to run wider tires so I could go down on the pressure.


Any thoughts on a good wider tire for daily commuting in Brooklyn (read potholes, crap in the road...) ?


Thanks !

A 24mm inner diameter would suggest that a 57mm or 2.25 inch tire would be in the sweet spot of the rim.
I would never run 35mm on a 24mm inner dia. rim.
Maybe something like Schwalbe G-One for you. Never tried them.

I'm running Schwalbe Almotions in 2.15" tubeless. Mine are 26" and it looks like you're riding 700c rims, but the Almotions come in 700 as well. My rim width is about the same. Tires are pretty good. Decent tread, decent width. They are a tad heavy and stiff, but that's balanced out once I remove the tubes. Don't know what the limits of your frame are, though.

Panaracerís Gravelking 38mm slick is tubeless friendly. If I could fit them, Iíd run them. Iíve also seen Pasela 37ís run tubeless on a local bike. Tempted to try that with my 35ís.

I run these in 42mm: https://www.specialized.com/us/en/sa...ready/p/130002

*Ignore* the recommended insane pressures.

Thing with the Gravel King SK....being a file tread it doesn't wear well on pavement. It also spits gravel at anyone behind you (which can tick off roadie mates)

Funny how you say that. I've been using them for the season already. More weight doesn't mean more puncture protection. There are better ways judge.....like trying them instead of just guessing.

For anybody wants to try this tire, sidewalls and tread areas are substantially thicker than Pasela or Compass tires.

Dunno if you'd consider a small tread or want slicks only, but I'll toss a vote out for Clement MSO. I have the 40s, the only reason I swapped them out for the USH was 40 was a bit too wide for my purposes. Really plush tho, and tubeless ready.
