    You need to check the tyres and wheels are tubeless ready (UST), the tyres will normally have UST or TR printed on them if so. You will also need tubeless rim tape and valve kit.

    Thanks

    Even if the wheel isn’t set for tubeless, it is possible to go ghetto tubeless using gorilla tape. Here are some useful vids to help you along the way:
