? on powercoating tubeless rims

i have a 18" x 5.5" 80 spoke tubeless rim I am breaking down to powder coat the spokes lime green and the hub n rim purple. I had to remove the 1/4" thick vulcanized rubber inside the rim to get to the spoke nuts ( what a bitch ) now I am wondering if after powder coat is done and reassemly of the rim if its alright to use a rubber liner ( to protect the tube ) and a tube and run the tubeless tire in a tube.

anyone ever done this?

Thanks In Advance.

I have an 80 spoke 18x10.5 that was a tubless that leaked, so it was broken down, wrapped the wheel around the spoke nipples with duct tape, and reinstalled the tire with a tube.

Been that way for about 4 years now.

rb donovan,
i think the rim you are referring to was not a "tubeless" one to begin with. as the tubeless ones have a liner inside them to prevent spokes from leaking air? did yours have this inside the rim?

Yes, it did have the rubbery sealer on the wheel to seal the spoke nipples, but it still leaked.


THANKS PETE
