Yeah, I know it's not recommended but I was wondering if anyone here has tried mounting non tubeless road tires - tubeless - on stans gravel wheels. Just dropped coin on the cb7 wheelset, and plan to have that help enable my grinder to serve as a double duty quiver killer road bike. I'd like to run 28c with around 60psi. Anyone tried it?

As I understand it, Stan's wheels are "oversized" to make it more reliable to use with non tubless tires.  

I run some non-tubless 32mm Continental 4-season tires on tubless wheels.  My biggest concern would be about burping.  So, I use skinnystrippers (latex liner) to ensure there are no surprises.  I know of others that use them on tubless wheels without the extra latex.   Below 32mm I just throw a tube in there - as there isn't much of a drawback using tubes with smaller tires (assuming flats aren't an issue).

Yeah, I wouldn't go over 60psi in your scenario.

People have tried it, and it has frequently failed magnificently.  Thus the recommendation not to do it. 

Get proper tubeless tires, or get new teeth.

Yes, don't do this.  It's an idea with potentially catastrophic, face-rebuilding consequences.

Having had a couple *tubeless* tires blow off rims, there is absolutely no way I'd risk this with tires not rated for tubeless use.

Now, if you want to run a 32mm tire at 25psi for 'cross, that's probably a different matter.  It might fail, but at least it'll be in the grass.
