Don’t mix your tubed & tubeless setups. Here is a profile example of the same Hutchinson Toro tubeless and tubed. Hutchinson tubelessRoad/cross tubeless has a different bead from mountain tubeless. Yes, it’s more than just tape and sealant. Road/cross tubeless tires have a square edged bead like the tire on the left rather than a rounded bead like the tire on the right. Rounded beads are found on all mountain and tubed road/cross tires. And since the tires have a different shape, so do the rims.
