This may seem like a dumb question but what's the advantage of running a tubeless tire? Less chance for a flat?
No, a screw or a nail will pierce a tubeless tire just as easily as a tubed one. But you can plug a tubeless tire in a few minutes, pump it up, and be back on your way. Whereas fixing flat on a tubed tire, especially on a rear tire, can drag on into hours of work. Not much fun doing that trailside on a hot afternoon out in the desert, especially without a center stand. DAMHIK.
I confess, having ridden bikes with cast wheels and tubeless tires, and bikes with spoked wheels and tubed tires, that I have zero interest in swapping out the stock wheels for some spoked ones when my G310GS finally gets here. Zero. Other than the bling factor, I see no advantage to spoked wheels on a bike this light. They're usually heavier, harder to keep clean, and then there's patching that tube. No thanks.
Cast wheels were once considered less durable than spoked wheels. But my experience with my old V-Strom showed me that this is clearly not the case anymore. I rode that thing all over the deserts of eastern Oregon, northern Nevada, Death Valley, Baja, and parts in between, and never suffered a single bent rim. And I wasn't always just plodding along out there. In fact, the only bent rim I ever suffered was on my current F800GS, which has spoked wheels.
But hey, if you have a spare US$1,400 just lying around, and like the way those wheels looks, go ahead and buy them. I think they look reeeel purty.
