Tubed tires threadfest

That's a mistake ... witch can be resolved.

Those people have a solution (but still to expensive):

Kineo Wheels Motorrad Felge für BMW R1200R 2006-2012 Motorrad Felge

These are for the R1200R, but I'm sure they'll make a set for the NineT.

I knew those weren't tubeless to run those kind of rims. I haven't seen any in the same style in tubeless though. The link is broken.

The link is working fine for me.

Does this help ?
Kineo Wheels Motorrad Felge für BMW R1200R 2006-2012 Motorrad Felge

Those are Kinea spokes alloys.

You can also find tubeless kits in Germany, and even a carbon rim if you like.

For this price I would have exspected Tubeless Spoken Weels.
BMW has done it in the R 1200 C already, so why not in the T ?

For security and maintainreasons on the road, it´s also important as the ABS.

I wouldn't mind seeing spoked wheels on the nineT but hearing the stories about the maintenance for them is just too much of a pain.

Almost Flaming on ADVRIDER.COM

Not sure this is correct. But, I understand that the tires are indeed tubeless tires but the spoked, center wheels cannot hold air so therefore the tube. Said differently, the bead does seat and tubeless tires are used, but tubes are needed to hold air. Is this or is this not correct.

Also, read somewhere that the R12R cast wheels will fit with no mods on the 90T?

I've been a BMW motorcycle fan for 20+ years And no bike has excited me more than the nineT in recent time. however, BMW choosing to put TUBED tires on this retro machine is a horribly bad judgment call on their part. Someone better come up with a viable option to correct this issue. Don't misunderstand me, I will have the spike in marginal matter what but I have no idea why they chose to not give us a tubeless rim design. Someone please help

I'm waiting on a response from BMW as to wether I can have the R1200R/k1300R alloys as a retro fit at build time instead of the tubed spokes.
This will still keep a good look without being over modern,and then see what colour option I can have either the same grey as the cylinder heads/ drive shaft on the 9T or go for the gloss black or maybe the satin black as on the newly released R1200R dark white

It will soon be available in the uk to actually place my specd order for the factory build with my options choice so will post if wheel option is a no goer !! Can't see it being a problem as it's only money I'm spending after all
