Stan's Yellow Tape is designed to work with tubeless-ready rims and wheels. If you'll be inflating your tires to 45psi or less, one layer of yellow tape in the bed of your rim is all you need for most rims. For road tubeless and similar tyres that require more than 45psi of pressure, a double wrap of tape is required.
What width Yellow Tape should I use?
The widths of Yellow Tape Stan's offer are based on the profiles of their rims. If you are using their tape in a different tubeless-ready rim, the tape should go from sidewall to sidewall (ie: not just over the spoke holes). Stan's recommend tape that is 1-2mm wider than the internal width of your rim to account for the drop channel.
Can I convert my non-tubeless mountain bike rim to tubeless with tape and valve only?
No. "Tape and Valve" conversions are only appropriate with rims that are labelled as "Tubeless Ready," "Tubeless Compatible," or similar. The BST (Bead Socket Technology) profile developed by Stan's NoTubes was a departure from traditional bicycle rim design and its core concept is the basis for the vast majority of "tubeless-ready" rims and wheels on the market today. Stan's Yellow Rim Tape is not, by itself, a tubeless conversion for older, traditional, non-"tubeless-ready" rims. These older rims require the use of a Stan’s NoTubes Rim Strip (now discontinued) to re-shape the rim bed to achieve a safe, secure tubeless setup. Using only Yellow Tape and Stan’s Sealant on a non-tubeless-ready rim can result in not only difficult inflation during set-up, but catastrophic "burping" (the rapid air loss that occurs when the tyre bead becomes separated from the rim) issues while riding.
